Follow the Pied Piper

This picture shows the corner of Broad Street and Queen Street on this wet and windy Sunday morning. It shows the tall side of Peacocks – previously the Somerfield / Co-op supermarket.

The Pied Piper restaurant was on this site – run by Mr and Mrs Gough. They served coffee and cakes and cream teas in the early 1960s. It is a matter of regret that such a fine building was demolished.

This post card (printed for S & S Stationery Co Ltd., Oxford) shows the beamed interior. The previous picture came from Abingdon and surrounding areas facts and history on Facebook. I don’t know where they got it.

Peacocks are to close. Time will tell, what will follow.
