This is a list of the Mount Pleasant shops that was pieced together from oral history and directory records. Some of the shops date from c.1900 and some were as late as the 1960s. What is certain is that this number of   establishments were serving Mount Pleasant from c.1910 to 1950. There are bound to be omissions. Hopefully we can pick them up as time goes on. Thanks to everyone who took part, particularly Mr Arthur Austin.
