Barrett's shop, St Neots, in the 1950s

The shop has changed little from the 1940s apart from the shop signage above the windows. However, the sign that once read High Street to the left of the 1st floor corner window has been replaced by a sign saying Market Square - which is too large for the brickwork and actually overhangs the corner.  Outside the shop are traffic lights and their accompanying box which houses the workings for the lights. This indicates that traffic is sufficiently increased that the lights are needed at this road junction.
