In the 1960’s Mum shopped at Pratts and used to treat us to an icecream in the restaurant. I remember little scoops of vanilla ice cream with a wafer served in silver metal goblet-type bowls with long spoons. White linen tablecloths and table service.
In 1956 my first pair of nursing shoes were purchased by post from Daniel Neals recommended by the then Westminster Hospital.Very comfortable and lasted 4years.
