Winkle Picker - a Memory of Polruan.

The Winkle Picker was nothing to do with picking winkles as some may think! The shop was owned jointly between Miss Joan Winkle and Miss Joanne Pickering, who also owned the Grey House in west street, and latterly the dinghy club that changed its name to the waterfront club just down the steps from the Grey House. Their nephew Philip Pickering was a good friend of mine for many years growing up in the village.
