Burn's Shop/Bakery - a Memory of Misterton.
My parents, Zack and May Burn had a bakery and grocery shop on Station Street during the 1950's. It was the whitewashed building at the far end of the photograph. In the 1960's they bought "Eignbrook", further along Station Street, which used to be Miss Maxwell's hairdresser's, and prior to that was Holmes' bakery. There my mum ran the grocery shop, which was a "Mace" shop and my father had a mobile grocery shop, serving Misterton and West Stockwith. They remained there until retirement. Other shops in the picture include Dick Kitchen's (newsagent) which was like an Alladin's cave, Colver's (clothing/haberdashery) and Metcalfe's which was divided into two, with Mrs Metcalfe selling baby clothes etc. and Mr Metcalfe selling groceries. Happy days!!!!
