  • The side where the large green and white building is has not changed one bit, judging by your pictures, however, the side where the Sketchley store is, that side of Tarpots has changed beyond recognition lol.

  • I used to work for Smiths hardware shop on a Saturday and during school holidays. This was in the early 50s. I rode a trade bike which had a pannier on the front and one on the back which when loaded with cans of paraffin became very unruly. I delivered to all sorts of places to get the heating oil to the houses. I bought my first bike off Smiths and Mr Smith let me pay it off out of my very small wage.

  • I used to work at L. Jones Family Butchers on Saturdays delivering orders in an old fashioned bike with a huge pannier on top of a small front. Ian Roberts credited as the author of this page was a friend whose family had the fish shop at the other end of the parade.
