When I used to give talks on twittens, a gentlemen clearly in his late 80s, told me that the shops in the Middle Street Twitten, used to be solicitors offices where a row of clerks worked on lecturn like desks covered with ledgers. When he was a small boy, he was often chased away by a clerk weilding a cane for making funny faces at them through the windows.

My great, great grandfather Henry James Vaughan sold antiques at 10 Ship Street Gardens in the early 1900s.  The mosaic step outside his shop is still there and I believe listed.

My great, grandfather had a business at 10 Ship Street gardens believed to be some sort of restoration workshop the family name VAUGHAN is written in mosaic on the step outside of the premises. Does anyone have any further knowledge of this or to what the trade actually was around 1900?
