  1. I live in Stoke Newington which is North London. When I was growing up in the 1950’s/1960’s we had two Zodiac Stores in the area. One was on the corner of Newington Green and Green Lanes and was part of the Doris Clark pram shop and the other was in Stoke Newington High Street. My brother and I were always looking in the window of the one at Newington Green or being taken there to have a toy bought for us. We only lived about 2 mins from the shop. We were also just a 10 min walk from the other one. 🙂 Both were brilliant shops and all the kids in the area adored them. It was such a shame to see them both close down. It was as if part of my childhood was being taken away.

    I’m very intrigued by the photo of the “Takings and rents” on the site as one of the shops is down on the list as being in Stamford Hill. That is the Doris Clark shop. Although Stamford Hill is part of Stoke Newington, the Doris Clark shop at Newington Green/Green Lanes was a couple of miles from Stamford Hill. Very intriguing. 🙂

    I love this site thought. My childhood has come back to me in a way. 🙂

    I have just been sent the home page of the Zodiac web site. Thank you for being nice about me,it brought back many happy memories. I have wondered where the organisation would have been without Ward White
    To my many ex colleagues I hope you went to successful careers and thank you for creating those memories

  3. Just want to say that i worked for zodiac toys for 10 years from 1979-1989. It was a wonderful company to work for. Everyone who worked at bedford head office were a great bunch of people. I remember brian ellis and mr grey.
