Two of the original cottages of London Road, photographed on 7 October 1962. Built in the 1830s as small houses; 102 was a butcher’s shop a few years later. It remained in this trade until the end, which came in 1963 when the buildings were demolished.
Do you remember these shops? Did you ever shop at the butcher’s? What about the shop next door? It looks like it did a great line in girdles for ladies – strange to believe women were still wearing things like that in the 1960s. I for one certainly did not go in for that type of torture!
