I was a Saturday boy at Percy Cox’s Greengrocers shop in the High Road. It was quite hard work delivering heavy sacks of potatoes to houses at the top of Clarence Road North or Thundersley Park Road on the shop bike.
The shop where I worked is just out of the photograph, there is a small group of people in the right hand corner they would be almost outside Cox’s shop.
