Book Shop - a Memory of Yeovil.

My mothers family moved to Yeovil in about 1926 from Beaminster in Dorset. My grandfather heard there was a job going for a gardener, he got the job so the family moved to a tide cottage in Ilchester Road. They had 5 childen then, my mum was born in 1930. One of them, my Auntie worked for Whitby Book Store. In the photo it is the shop on the right. She stayed there until war came in 1939, then left to work for Westlands. It was there she met her husband.
