My Grandfather, Leonard Deadman, was the manager at Rodmans at 3 St James Street till it shut in the early 1960s. I believe he worked there from 1932 after he moved from Slough where he was manager of that branch of the firm.
The black and white photo is how I remember the shop when we stayed there in the 1950s. Do you remember Rodmans? If you do, please leave a comment below.
