Does anyone remember or know about a florist's shop called 'Jedith' which was situated in the parade of shops at the front of the cinema (The Capitol?) in London Road, on the South Circular opposite Forest Hill Railway Station? It was run by Jane Knight and Edith Grellier (hence the name 'Jedith') until 1959, when they bought the Hallsands Hotel in South Devon (the subject of a book I am currently researching and writing).

Also, can anyone remember or have information on Carver's Stores, also in Forest Hill at that time? I believe there were several shops - a hairdressers, a sweetshop, a later restaurant, possibly others - all trading under the name 'Carver's and run by Bert Carver.

Many thanks for your help.
