A kindly, retiring woman, Emily was one of the few religious residents of the Street.
As Emily and Swindley had come to a mutual understanding, they were able to continue working together, their relationship continuing as it was.Emily owned a baby linen shop in Rosamund Street, Weatherfield in the early 1960s, which merged with Swindley's Emporium in 1961.Emily maintained a close professional relationship with Leonard Swindley, lay preacher at the Glad Tidings Mission Hall, serving as his assistant at clothing shop Gamma Garments as well secretary for the Mission committee.You can love a script, but if it doesn't have a good director, it won't be that. Emily Bishop (née Nugent, previously Swain) was a long-standing Coronation Street resident and former owner of No.3, where she lived with Norris Cole.In 1965, Swindley left Weatherfield to take a job as Area Manager of Gamma Garments and Emily took over his responsibilities at Gamma and the Mission.
Emily took on Elsie Tanner and Sandra Petty as assistants at Gamma and threw herself into the work.
Emily greatly admired her pompous colleague but while they were never more than friends, their apparently close relationship was noticed by Emily's father, who was keen for Emily, at thirty-one, to marry soon and thought Swindley would make a good husband for her.
In 1961, Emily's shop faced closure as the lease was up.
Even at that, she missed Swindley and when she saw how unhappy he was at Head Office, she resigned so that he could return to his former position.
1964 saw Emily and Swindley grow closer when Emily supported Swindley after he had a nervous breakdown.
Although shy in comparison to her brother and four sisters, Emily was independent and by the early 1960s ran her own baby linen shop in Rosamund Street, Weatherfield, handling all matters involving the shop by herself and living alone in the flat above, leaving her roots and family home behind.
