Object of the Week : L is for Lilley’s

Tuesday 23 March 2021

Whilst the Museum is closed and our collections unable to be seen by visitors, we have created a weekly virtual museum with an Object of the Week feature from our collections.

Object of the Week : L is for Lilley’s

The Museum’s photo archive contains many images of Shenley Road over the years. Here, the white shop on the corner  of Shenley and Furzehill  Roads was bought by  Geoffrey Lilley  in 1943. His wife was made manager  while  he worked in an aero  factory  on  Spitfires. When the war ended  he returned and built up a business that by 1951 was one of the most extensive  radio & electrical  shops in South Hertfordshire.

In the 1950s and 60s Lilley’s became the place to buy your LPs.

The adverts amd more can be found in From Ladbroke Grove To Boreham Wood by Vic Rowntree - online sales from this website.
