I'm the little girl in the middle - that is a 50's carnival float for Barnett's - my father Joe Barnett's business. Kathleen (with the guitar) was my father's secretary & Cllr Bill Hayton's sister-in-law.

Bill Hayton

Yes my sister in law Kathleen Hayton nee Chapman with the guitar and I think Mrs Barnett in the back.

I Absolutely loved Barnett's. From the late 50's and throughout the 60's I built up a record collection solely from 15 Queen Street.
I now put out a music podcast, playing only stuff from my own Record collection and Barnett's gets several mentions. I believed Rosalyn worked in the shop after School and allowed me to go through the deleted records at a knock-down price!. Find me and Barnett's at:

Try episodes 5, 6, 17 and soon to be released 48 for mentions and illustrations of 15 Queen Street Ramsgate.
