In response to a letter in the Journal (February 27) that requested the name of a High Street gents’ outfitters in Grantham, circa 1943, reader Mike Matsell sent in this picture of Colin Tipler’s empty shop, photographed much later in years.

Opposite the tailor’s shop was George Mills.

Mike recalls that the Tiplers lived on Somerby Hill and that the registration number of Colin Tipler’s car was CT 41.
