Albany Road Shops, 1950s

B/W photo showing a butchers and grocers shop with cars and people

Samuel Day has provided this photo taken by his grandfather, James DAUBNEY, who ran a greengrocers shop on Albany Road during the 1950s.

Kay Day has provided some details about the photo: 'the left side car is my fathers and the man with his back to us is my maternal grandfather Henry Ford; in the background is Mafeking Avenue'. The car on the right is a split-screen Morris Traveller, first produced in 1952.

Two shops with signs are a butchers, H Hunt (beef and pork) and grocers, K.A. and A.W. Field at 7 and 6 Market Terrace, Albany Road.

A search of telephone directories on the ancestry.co.uk website shows H. Hunt at this address between 1937 and 1971 and K.A. Field 1956 - 1963, so it seems likely the photo was taken between 1956 and 1963.

Adverts are displayed in K.A. and A.W. Field's shop for Atlas Lamps and Lyons Tea.
