Gradually the chandeliers took precedence over books as they became more popular, especially with the new ease and versatility of electricity.

In 1922, the present premises at 166 Kensington Church Street were acquired, where the family were able to live and work.

Both shops were run by Mary and Michael Denton, the children of Mrs Elizabeth Denton.
