Does anyone here in England remember Nova Pilbeam?

Without the aid of Google. Please, no kids googling and pretending they know first hand. I also wonder if these still exist: Derry and Tom's store and Lyon's Corner House. I was in England in 1962.
MORPHEUS: Thanks for update on changing times. We owned Mappin & Webb silver service. It is too bad London lost its traditions. If I remember, Derry and Tom's had a roof garden, or was that another store? I am sorry and saddened about all the institutions.
GRANNY: Thanks for your recollections. I just wanted to see if anyone had ever seen her in the movies. It was before I was born too but I am an old movie fan of English movies. She made one called "Non-stop New York" in which she stowed away on a Pan Am clipper ship bound for New York from London. My mother rememberd her from the 30s.

A bit before my time, but Derry and Toms has definitely gone. I was in Kensington a year or two back and the building is still there, but it's been taken over by a mixture of other stores. I think they went out of business in the 1970s.

The Lyons Corner Houses became self-service restaurants called Jolyon in the late 60s, and have all gone.

There are, sadly, many things which were around in the 1960s which have fallen by the wayside. Not least the Mappin and Webb building down near Bank, which was completely demolished in the 1990s to be replaced by the monstrosity known as 'No.1 Poultry'.
