Barbara Dee (Market Street)

Barbara D was a ladies boutique on Market Street in Manchester just along and on the same side as Dolcis and Saxone shoe shops. In the late sixties/early seventies they sold fab crochet dresses, tops, skirts and trousers. I've still got my pink, lurex, mini, crochet dress from there in the wardrobe. I often wore it at The Twisted Wheel all nighters in the late 60's.

The Barbara D window was very unusual as it was a red fascia circular window.

I was back in Manchester in the early 90's and the shop front was still there but it was an insurance/finance store. I was back in Manc in early 2000's but it had gone - any pics or memories out there you could post?
