Looks to me that the chaps might be sitting on the steps of the Blacksmith Arms.

Can you remember how the Rabbit skins used to hang up in long rows
drying, stunk to high heaven, and the big machine for making ice.
Do people still buy rags like Skinners did, or are they just thrown away.
We always got more money for wool, always the last resort to get
the money together to go to the flicks :-D

If you allow for the bend of the road, and shadow of the sun, I think your first pic is looking Eastward towards what was either Emmerson & Langfords ironmongers, or Wm Riches, shops in Chapel Street?

skinners and everetts

Postby littleoldboy » 15 Aug 2007, 21:56

Trouble is I am just a tad younger than you guys.My memory of the rag and bone trade starts early sixties when I used to work Saturdays at W H Smiths on the railway station. Every few weeks my job was to bundle up all the unsold newspaper and magazines (after tearing front covers off as these were sent back to wholesaler for a refund). I would the push them down to Skinners on a barrow, We got paid by the weight, half the money went to Smiths and half to me. I remember seeing bales of rags but not the rabbits

skinners

Postby roger » 16 Aug 2007, 08:37

i use to go to skinners with my grandad to take bones when we tipped the bags out rats would run everywhere they looked as big as cats, Arthur Golding use to weigh them his specs were right on the end of his nose he kept looking at the scales to see your foot was not on the scales.Roger.

Hello Rog. I have said on here before that I lived next door to Arthur and Flo in Marshall st.
He always reminded me of a Dickens character, lovely old couple.
