General Store Whiteparish - a Memory of Whiteparish.

My parents owned the General Store which features as photograph 16 of the 18 available. The picture must be at least circa 1961 since my parents did not purchase it until that year (You can see the names AG & N (Alan George and Norma Taylor)on the hoarding. The saddlery was next door and Jack Hyde was the Queen's saddler at the time. Mrs Pulford, referred to in another memory, worked for my parents and knitted me a short sleeve sweater that I still have. At the time my parents delivered milk, groceries and newspapers throughout the area, a service that was soon to disappear as supermarkets became prevalent. It was a wonderful place to grow up.
