Oxford of the 1940s 50s

I am writing a few words on the Oxford of my boyhood in the 1940s and 1950s for my Grandchildren. I have got to the stage of writing about the shops in the city centre but my memory is lacking a lot of detail. I would like to be able to write a little about shops such as Macfisheries, Lipton's, Grimly Hughes, the Continental, Webbers, Elliston & Cavell’s and Capes to name a few. I have looked for books, information on Oxford in the 1940s 1950s but the market is stuffed with information on the university not the town. Has anyone got any suggestions?
