Crowther’s appears to have been trading for a relatively short period on South King Street: it appears on Goad maps in 1969, but had gone by 1973. It sold a range of clothes, being particularly associated with the mod style of the period.
“It was an ‘old fashioned’ shop but very stylish, I lived outside Manchester so it was an adventure to shop in town. This was the nearest thing to Biba designs outside London..
I used to save up my money and get smart and fashionable clothes that lasted well. I remember buying a black frock made of jersey, plain but stylish with long points on the collar with long cuffs with a row of tiny buttons on the cuff.”
