Burton Tailors. In the 1960s (at least) the upper floor was used as a venue for dancing - it was called 'The Cameo'.

I think this was the site of my father's (Cyril Dunn) allotment in the 1950s and 1960s.

Longton Cemetery lodge stood by the top gates of the cemetery. My uncle, Dennis Bowers was the registrar there for many years. As a boy, I spent many hours there visiting my Aunt, Ada Bowers, and my cousins. Aunty Ada made the thinnest chips you can imagine, and cut them at lightning speed. It's a wonder she had any fingers left!

The building stood facing Commerce Street. In the 1960s it was a popular venue each Saturday morning for children who went along to the ABC Minors Club to watch films and cartoons. Zorro, Batman, and the like, were shown as a series.
