Jean Pile writes from Bear Flat in Bath:
‘I was interested to see The Corridor mentioned recently. I remember it well when I was growing up in Bath – a very busy arcade with lots of well attended shops.
The most prominent one was Hatts a large, very smart hairdresser’s, taking up quite a continuous space on the left of the Corridor walking from the Guildhall end.
Northumberland Place, by comparison in those days – the 1950s/60s – was a fairly ordinary street, quite the opposite to the Corridor. There was a plant shop at one end with W.H. Smith at the other, now Patisserie Valerie as mentioned.’
