The interior of Mr Fairhead’s newsagents at No 6 Friars Street on March 14th 1984 shortly before he sold the business to McDowells. The interior layout was then radically altered but a visitor to the shop today will still see the fixture for the gas light in the ceiling. The Express headline ‘Nice one Nigel’ is a reference to the previous day’s Budget as is The Sun’s ‘Sweet and Sour.’
