Gulvins Village Store.

A Memory of Bredhurst

re. photo of 'Bredhurst, the Village c1955 (ref: B582003)'

The shop on the far left of the photo was a general store owned by the Gulvins, run mostly by Mrs Gulvin and Nan. Mr Gulvin was a farmer. They had at least two children. I only knew Nancy and Gerald. Gerald Gulvin married Barbara Pye, my cousin. (see my memories page). I would have been 15 years old in 1955.
Unfortunately Gerry (as he was known) was tragically killed in a tractor accident in a field not far from where this picture was taken.

I am so pleased to find this site and photo. My husband is Brian, son of Gerry and Barbara and has no photographs of his grandparents but remembers the store. I have ordered the photograph for him and I know this will make him happy.
