Johnson Electrics

Sales – exchange – repairs for Electric washers, radio, television, etc. Records seem to have been a sideline for the shop possibly in the 1950s, as the 78 sleeves were plain with just a three colour rubber stamp printed on them. The Staniforth Road building survives but had been converted to residential accommodation. Newhall Road has been redeveloped as industrial units.
