Loughborough, Market Street 1949

Memories of Loughborough


This was a wonderful delicatessen (although it would have described itself as "general provisions" or something like that, It had huge cheeses and whole sides of smoked pork and giant hams in the window. It had a unique smell - a mixture of spices, coffee, smoked meat and cheese. NO modern deli comes anywhere near it - apart possibly from Volpetti in Testaccio, Rome.

Clemersons was a great toy and model shop. I used to go in the 60s upstairs to their model section.

This shows the old swimming baths on Granby Street, it looks like the picture is taken from the Carillion in Queen's Park.
