Caption for St Neots, Roper's Shop, Cambridge Street C1965

A child's paradise in the 1960s, this shop still stands just over the crossroads on the Huntingdon Road out of St Neots. It has since been a newsagents and video rental shop, and is now a fast food outlet for USA Chicken.

The Angel, St Neots

I lived in The Angel opposite and spent all of my pennies in Roper's. I remember big Fred with much fondness.

Happy School Days With The Ropers

Brilliant to see this little piece of St Neots History Ropers were well known for their small shop in Cambridge Street mid 60s, As local kids from the council estates we waited in anticipation of the new building being completed from behind the screens.

Papers

I remember collecting the Sunday papers from the back door of Ropers house before the shop was built, and an order for a cake could be placed to be made for birthdays and other occasions, I forget the name now of the lady who made these wonderful cakes.

My Great Grandfather The Papermill Manager

My great-grandfather Ogilvie Bricknall was the manager of this mill at the turn of the century. He was a great papermaker and had moved to St Neots with his family from Longforgan in Perthshire. His son James was assistant manager in 1911 and the mill employed his two daughters as clerks.

I Attended Here In The Late 50s And Early 60s

I remember St Marys when Mr Naylor if im right was the headmaster when i left to go to Longsands in 1962. At easter and Christmas we use to go to St Marys church opposite for services. There was some prefab classrooms at the back and you still had ink and milk monitors, i cannot remember the name of the teachers so if any one can please add them to this memory. Many thanks David Matzk age 56.
