Western Road

This advertisement for Harris’s Artificial Teeth is from the collection of Reverend Anthony Martlew.  It states that Harris’s address is 99 Western Road, one door from Montpelier Road. Initially I struggled to establish the exact location of 99 Western Road.  I thought Harris’s must be on the north side, with steps up to the entrance. However after a little time on the internet its clear that Harris’s was on the south side, where Taj The Grocer is currently located.
