Congratulations also to Paul Wallace Estate and Letting Agents, with two offices in Hertfordshire, which is marking its 70th birthday this year. It was founded in Hoddesdon in 1949 by Paul Wallace, who had served as a captain in the North Africa campaign during the war. The business still has a branch on Hoddesdon High Street plus a second in Cheshunt. It has had other offices over the years – in Welwyn, Hertford, Ware, Epping, Waltham Abbey and Enfield – but now covers these areas from its current offices, where it says it is still seeing “fantastic footfall” thanks to locations which continue to attract large numbers of shoppers. Employing a staff of 14, the firm says it enthusiastically embraces technology but definitely sees the high street as the way forward. This rather fuzzy picture shows how Paul Wallace’s Cheshunt office looked in the eighties. We’re intrigued – did the woman really have a wire basket to pick up the particulars, or was she on her way to or from the supermarket? (Unfortunately, we remember the hairstyle.)
