Sorry about this but when I get the bit between my teeth.................

1904 directory lists:
Adcocks, Tobacconists, 117 High St
Wrights Boot & Shoe Maker 30 King St
Freeman Hardy & Willis at 47 High Street
Hilton at 27 and Misson at 28 Norfolk Street
Ibberson at 57 High Street
Curry's at 104 High Street
Barrett was at 100 High Street and Tower Street
Scott & Son were at 93/94 High Street
H R Powell was at 32 St James' Street
Walton Brothers were at 38 High Street and 47/49 St James Street

I will post this info on the correct pages when I get time and do more research too, but I thought I would post this quickly before I go off to my little old bed!

Where did Ibberson move to after 57 High street? This building has five windows and 57 High Street only had three.

Now I need to locate this building. :)
I am very interested in local history of mid-Norfolk and I have lots of connections to families in the Lynn area. http://www.norfolk-tours.co.uk/

An Ibberson's ad. in the Lynn Advertiser of 15 Dec. 1905 gives three addresses in Lynn: head office at 57 High St., wholesale department in Norfolk St. and retail branch at 1 Saturday Market. By 1923 they were operating from 56 High St. & 148 Norfolk St., but were forced to close down on Xmas Eve 1924, having been given notice to quit (Lynn Ad. 5 Dec. 1904).

Yay!

The picture doesn't show 56 or 57, as they were both three story buildings and 56 was round-fronted. The one in the picture has two floors and five windows.
Bradfield & Ibberson traded at 51 High Street and Norfolk Street and Ibberson traded at 1 Saturday Market Place, as well as in Norfolk Street.

The picture shows 1 Saturday Market Place.

All I can tell you is what the cutting said in the paper sometime ago as that is where the picture came from.
When I posted it I thought I had seen it before.

Not sure if this is relevant to this topic but my mother worked at Bradfield & Ibberson, Wholesale Drapers at what is now 78 Norfolk Street (The 3 Storey building containing Canto Da Rosita Restaurant on the ground floor). She started there in 1945 just after the end of WWII.
The business was actually owned at that time by a Mr Hares (He also owned the 'Harecroft' properties along Loke Road
