THIS week in Yester Years, we are looking at some of the most familiar names once on the high street in Warrington.

The Waysiders, based on Horsemarket Street, has specialised in glassware and china products in the town centre since 1944.

It closed in 2014 and is now home to the popular Italian restaurant Cafe Caruso.

Until the regeneration of Old Market Place in the early 1970s, The Waysiders was initially made up of three stores – dedicated to glassware and china, wool and haberdashery.

A relocation to one amalgamated store followed, where they joined a popular row of shops including Burtons and H Samuel on Horsemarket Street.

Alos pictures are shops ranging from Co-op and Woolworths to Gay Miss.

All of these shops have disappeared from Warrington's high streets.

How many others can you remember?
