Memories of Dalton-In-Furness

Read and share your memories of Dalton-In-Furness itself or of a particular photo of Dalton-In-Furness.

my great grandfather was James Simpson Blair who had his business in Dalton and celebrated his 100yrs in the 1990s. Does anyone remember it or is there any family out there. I am writting about him for college and need help, thanks.

My great great uncle must have been well known to many a Daltonian. His name was Jonty Harper and he was commissionaire at the Roxy picture house in Market Street. He is believed to have been quite a stern man and didn't appreciate anyone getting in without paying. If anyone else can add to this it would be nice to hear your memories of him.
