Memories of Scunthorpe

This Brings Back Such Lovely Memories

I was really shocked but pleased to find this photo - it is of my mum and nana in 1955 on Scunthorpe's High Street - we lived in Allanby Street. I was 10 years old when this picture was taken - it has brought back fond warm memories thank you - Linda.

Hollidays

This picture shows Hollidays livery. I am George Holliday's great grand daughter. My aunt used to talk about where the shop was and while I don't remember it, I do remember her talking about it. It was fascinating to find this picture, which ties in exactly with what she said!

Great Grandad's House

My great grandad lived and worked on the right of this photo. I'm not 100\% sure which house but the location fits with census returns and what I've been told. The sign may say his name, I can't make it out clearly enough to be certain.
