I believe Blinkhorns was in Gloucester before 1940
as I have a gift card given to my Father when he Married and he Married in 1929 also I have his safe driving awards which dates from 1932 until 1952.
Not only was it a department store I have photo of the vans used to delivery furniture and also they did house removals. In Gloucester we have a lane named after Blinkhorns called Blinkhorns Bridge Lane
I worked in various departments in the early ’70’s, notably ‘export’ which was situated next to parcels dispatch, with the manger Doug Dale, two secretaries, Gloria and Shelley and myself crammed into a small office opposite Mr Stroud’s office, the manager of parcels. I also worked in sample sales and the dispatch queries office. Following 3 years at Clearings I moved to Bon Marche in Brixton
Yes, Valerie you were correct. I have now amended the post accordingly. Thank you.
