44½ King Street
It is difficult to determine how and when No 44 King Street was divided into two parts, one becoming known as 44½, but there is no reference to this in records before 1880, nor after 1930, and in the years around the turn of the century, T Couch appears to have occupied both parts, as did Le Poidevin, as is clear from the early 20th century advert below.
- 1880 - James Potter, shoemaker
- 1885 - P Luce, hosier
- 1890 - Singer Sewing Maching Company
- 1900 - T Couch
- 1930 - Hipps, tailors
