I was order boy for quite a few proprietors, one being Mallorys in Prestongate. This photo is slightly earlier.
My grandmother ran the candy store on Prestongate for many years. Many happy memories. There was Audreys next door and Pillings TV rental on the corner.
Fishing for eels here, especially during the school holidays. Loved watching the ships built by Dunstons being side-launched into the water - huge waves! Also saw the 'Winston Churchill' being built and eventually launched after it blew over during construction.
