Bursledon Stores - a Memory of Bursledon.

Ah - This was owned by Mr & Mrs Saunders. Mrs Saunders was always in the shop - she wore a floral cotton pinafore with her hair up in a bun and spectacles. I can still remember the sound of the massive bacon slicer with it's spinning blade as she pushed the ham through it, moving it forward slice by slice, and the ratchety hum of the chiller cabinet. The shop was quite dark with a counter at the back on the left, and I think the sweets were kept on shelves to the right? And the little van outside was pea green coloured and Mr Saunders, with his glasses, silky moustache, and cap, would go bombing around the lanes delivering the groceries.
