The Attic, Nelson Terrace

t15075This is The Attic it was my wife’s aunt and uncle, Kathy and Harry Parker’s second antique shop on Nelson Terrace.
Their first Attic shop was on the corner near the American Tavern and when that was redeveloped in about 1971/72 they moved to the above shop which had previously been “Boobs” a trendy clothes boutique.
Around 1973/74 they moved next door to Tate’s which was larger.
They also lived and had a shop on Norton Road near the Turks Head which had been a watch makers and for a short while had a stall in the Shambles.

  1. Next to the attic was a wooden shed which had been the end of the original rope walk. The shop was later the first KFC in Stockton.

  2. I lived and played around this area but can’t recall it. Was this across the road from the Coop butchers.? if so I think Radio Rentals was on the corner of that block years earlier.
