Letter: Who recalls a Sooty and Sweep shop?

Was there a Sooty and Sweep shop in Falsgrave?
Was there a Sooty and Sweep shop in Falsgrave?

I am native of Scarborough (born 1947) and, although my family moved to Reading in the 1950s, I used to return to Scarborough in the early 1960s to work during the school holidays.

I often tell people that Harry Corbett’s Sooty and Sweep used to live on Falsgrave Road as I have a memory that, at that time, there was a Sooty and Sweep shop at some point where the road dips.

Is this just a dream, or can anyone else please confirm or deny it?

With much appreciation for anybody’s assistance. I can be contacted at siosepol@tiscali.co.uk with any information.
