Showler's Of Dolphin Lane

A Memory of Boston

What a lovely site this is. I didn't live in Boston but spent many happy years in the 60' and 70's staying with my Grandma, Doris Showler, who had owned the sweetshop 'Showler's' in Dolphin Lane since the 1930's and later carried on working in it when she sold it on and it became 'Cuthbert's'. It's the shop which is now the perfumerie. It seems that anyone who grew up in the area at that time visited the shop for their sweeties and, later, their ciggies! I'm currently writing a book about my past and would love to hear from anyone who has personal memories of the shop and my lovely gran. You can find me at www.hazelquinn.com - I would love to hear from you. Thanks!
