Read Brothers

A Memory of Aveley

My mother and father worked for Mr Read between 1966 and 1987, most of the time around the Hall Road shop but later in the mid to late 1980's also up in the High Street shop, which has been pulled down and an new shop built.
Mr Read died in the late 1990's and since then the shops have been sold - the High Street is not the same now.
