In the 1920s and 30s my Gran, Mrs Alice Myers, had the shop in Grimshaw Lane which was later taken over by the Kenyon family.
The first photo was taken in about 1921, and shows a group of local kids at the back door of the shop.
Standing at the back: Edna Lyon, May Alker, Eva Myers, Abram Ashcroft, Mary Barton.
Seated at the front: Billy Lyon, Belle Myers, Arthur Sixmith.
During a visit to England, my mother and her sister went to visit the shop which had once been their home. In the photo you see my mother, Mrs Eva Coulshed at the left with her sister Mrs Gladys Johnson and Wilma (who was running the shop at the time) in the centre.
This photo was taken either in 1977 or 1981.
