Roy Hood - Disappeared shops

Todays photographs show Roy Hoods Greengrocers shop which used to stand on Stockport Road in Gee Cross. 

The photos were taken by Nick Clarke in 1982.

I had forgotten all about this shop until I saw the photos. I've used it very often .
Thanks for posting - I've got a nice little bit of nostalgia going on here.
