Post Office And Stores c1950, Coolham
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

My family and I lived in the post office and stores when this picture was taken. I am Christine Sheldon, one of the twins of the Sheldon family. We loved living there, my dad was the baker and the shop sold everything - and even had a tea room. My twin and I lit a fire in the attic once with straw and set fire to the roof. Coolham is a wonderful place and we were very sad to see that the shop had been pulled down and was now flats. For a while we went to the Vikkage school on the opposite corner, which was fun, then we moved to Capel in 1952-ish to the bakery there. Happy days, Christine Grigg (nee Sheldon).
