Growing Up At 77 Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew - a Memory of Thorpe St Andrew.

The house on the right of this picture was owned by the Parker family who lived there and ran a Post Office, drapery and grocery store next to the house from 1902 until the 1950s. Members of the Parker family continued to live there until the late 1990s. My father, Hugh Caley Parker moved there in 1942 at the invitation of his uncle who could no longer manage the business and I have many happy memories of growing up in the house with my parents and brother and sister.
