We've just bought a house on the corner of Marshall street and Invincta road, Folkestone. We can tell from the deeds that it was some sort of shop. I'd be fascinated to know more.

Nip into the reference library on Grace Hill and look at Kelly's Directory. From GSV it looks like there could have been shops on at least three corners of the Xroads.

You donít say which house is yours, but as Paul said, there has been commercial premises on three of the four corners.

I checked my 1952 directory, and number 45 was listed as Corner Stores, so probably a grocers. 48 was Radio Relays Ltd., and a grocer by the name of Thomas Bowler and Son was at number 50.
