New Pharmacy On High Street (1964/5) - a Memory of Westbury.

My dad (Brian Gray) moved us down form Manchester in Feb. 1964 to open a new pharmacy on the 'new' High Street.

We lived upstairs in flat 111 (I think!) and while mum (Margaret Gray) helped dad start the shop, my sister Rona (5 at that time) went to the C of E infant school (near Parish Church) and I being 3 was farmed out to a friend (Dot Large) in an old (and supposedly haunted) 17th century house on Church Lane.

I have a super photo of 'the young family' in front of the newly opened can I upload it to share here please?

Unfortunately we are unable to offer this service at the moment - but hopefully we can add the ability to upload photographs in the future. Ed.
