Can anyone remember the name of the toy shop on Ware High Street in the 1970's?

I thought it was ‘Ware Furnishing Stores’ as it had a link to another shop on the High Street. It was located where Austin’s is now.

I think Cod is right about that. Although i have a vague memory that there was at some point, perhaps in the late 1960s, a toy shop where the carpet shop in Baldock Street now is.

The toy shop in Baldock Street (now Byrvers carpets) was called Larences (think the spelling is right). Of course when Wells in what is now Costa they used to sell Dinky toys and Meccano (the metal variety).
