98 & 100 High Street - a Memory of Crowle.

These two shops in the High Street in Crowle were owned by my grandmother Rose Raper. They were handed down to my father and aunt. My dad Raymond Raper had the grocers shop at number 98 and we lived above the shop until I was ten years old in 1963. My dad continued to work in the shop until his retirement in 1984.
The shop at 100 was owned by my aunt Winnie Underwood. She had a drapery shop and her husband ran the post office at the back of the premises.
