Caption for Bury St Edmunds, Buttermarket C1955: On the left is the covered entrance to the Playhouse. The buildings from the High Spot to the Suffolk were damaged by the Zeppelin raid in 1915, and the timbered Freeman, Hardy and Willis is a 1920s replacement. On the right is Lloyds Bank, built in 1795-97, with Adam-style doors and ground floor windows, as Spink and Carss' Bank. In 1829 it became Oakes and Bevan, in 1899 the Capital and Counties, and in 1918 Lloyds. The bank sign has a beehive for Bevan, and an Oak Tree on top for Oakes of Nowton Park. At the far end is Abbeygate Street, with the three-storey Barclays Bank of 1881, which incorporated the Post and Sorting Office until 1895, the Midland Bank of 1914, and Whipps the fishmonger.

In 1861 my Great, Great, Great Grandfather Charles Frederick Whiskin worked for the Steel family in their grocer's shop situated in the Butter Market.  Charles came originally from Black Friars in London and was born in 1832.  He learnt his trade from the Steels and went on to own his own shop in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire which he ran with his wife Susannah.   

That was a surprise to suddenly see a photo' of the Boarding House I spent my secondary school years in. I actually loved the place - not every day perhaps, but measured over time it was a very formative part of my life. Best years of my life? Dunno, I've been a lucky boy and have enjoyed life one heck of a lot and still do. (...Read full memory)
