Cadel Shop - Market Square

The Market Square c1955, Witney
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

The shop in the middle of the picture with the two awnings (now the Nationwide building society) used to belong to my great grandmother Eva Cadel and was a wool and toy shop.  My Grandmother and Great Aunt ran it until 1971.  My grandmother Joan ran the toy side and my Great Aunt Mary ran the wool.  Many people still today tell me that their first pram/doll/train set came from the Cadel shop. Pictures such as these are very special and are a treasure.

We were married in April 1978 and our first big shop was done at Waitrose.  We filled a full size trolley to the brim for the princely sum of £20.00.
This area is now the entrance to the Woolgate Centre
Happy days....

The two awnings belonged to the Cadels shop. To the right of the awnings was an archway which was the entrance to their yard and home. The shop was in the family for 70 years, the fruit shop was further down.
