Pawnshop Passage - a Memory of Louth.
My paternal grandparents lived in Schoolhouse Cottages off Lee Street where we occasionally stayed on holidays, Christmas etc. There was an alleyway called "Pawnshop Passage", emerging onto Mercer Row by the bow window in the photograph (Stationers Shop then?), which we children used as a shortcut to the town centre, or perhaps the Playhouse Cinema; when skipping through the passage we used to sing out to hear our voices echo.
My father's first job on leaving school was at a Fish & Chip Shop now called "This Is It" I believe - this would have been in the late 1920's.
