Historic Maps of Worcester and the local area.

My father was a grocer with a shop in Stourport. Every Wednesday afternoon the shop was closed and he took my mother shopping to Worcester. In the school holidays I was also taken. His car was an Austin Saloon similar to the one in the photograph and the busy street is exactly as I remembered.

An Uncle of my fathers Tom Maylett was the park keeper and lived at Cripplegate House and we used to visit when we went to the park and the paddling pool which was where the road is now,he had greenhouses to do all the plants fir the bedding displays,the house always had a very musty smell to it
