Camborne shops in the 1950's. Published as a postcard by Fitzwilliams.

G.A.Green's tobacconist shop on the left was the first to open in the Camborne shopping parade on Saturday 15th July, 1950 (it was broken into and had a stock of cigarettes stolen on Tuesday 18th July 1950) These shops served the industrial estate, especially the chip shop at the far end and the Bakers (Rhodes) 3rd from the left which did a brisk trade in rolls and pasties etc. Colin Chapman who lived nearby in the 50s remembers the shops as follows, Tobacconists and sweets, Chemist, Bakers, Grocers, Butchers, Fishmonger and (later) fish and chips, Drapers and Greengrocer.
