Cross Street In The 1960s

A Memory of Bungay

I was born in 1960 in Cross Street, Bungay above my grandmother's shop, a ladies dress shop called Dorothy Laws. We used to visit regularly through the 1960s.My mother, Una Jane, married Gerald Read who I believe worked for a grocers shop that was alongside the Buttercross. I remember the Mynah bird in Warnes shop clearly. We had an 'Auntie Betty and Uncle Freddie', family friends not relatives, who also lived in Cross Street, above a shop if I remember correctly. Not sure of their surname.
