G. T. Jones & Co Wine Merchants. Taken over by Gough1973

Balliol1974's memory of 6th November 1974

I remember G. T. Jones the wine merchants and only thought about them a week or so ago only to discover with the advice from Stephanie Jenkins that it had been taken over by Gough Brothers in 1973 after she pointed me towards an Oxford Heritage Search. This stated,"Jones G T & Co, Carfax & 14 High St, 38 High St. & 15 Kingston Rd, Oxford. Oldest firm of wine shippers & merchants in Oxford estab 1787. Taken over by Gough Bros. Oxford Mail, 6.11.1974. p.3. Reference OCI-5610
I would love to know how Jones came to such an end, what happed to the shops and what happened to Gough.

Also on 6th November 1974...
