Hi again Appso ( please call me Teri) crikey that takes me back . The Windows we used to look into were the floor below where your wife worked. You won't believe this, but on the very first photo in this thread I am on it. Far right girl with the fur collar on her coat! Not the old girl with the hat and glasses!Next to Rivetts was Easifits shoe shop, run by a Mr Honey. He had a son called Kenneth, who hated me for some reason. Next to that was Joys arcade and from the flat roof outside our flats kitchen window, you could look down through the glass roof and see all the shoppers below. Amazing, Thankyou T

It was Mrs Appso that worked for the quantity surveyor.
This is what happens when you get called away to peel the spuds and forget where you were and do not read it through properly!

There is a picture in THE WOOL SHOP thread showing Rivetts wool shop. I seem to know the lady up the ladder. 8)

again. I know they say they are "lost" but surly they could be recreated again, there are enough old pics with them on to take a pattern from.

Don`t know about the arches but I know where the four cast shields are, two on each arch. :wink: :wink:


If anyone cannot remember them or never seen them here is a nice picture of one. Originally gas powered lights.

No.56 High Street Frank Ketteringham

Postby Leigh » 19 Jun 2018, 10:00

Yesterday I saw a possibly early 1900s photograph of a shop called "Frank Ketteringham" No.56 High St. I haven't included the photo as I don't know if it's copyrighted? Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the former shop or Frank Ketteringham as there doesn't seem to be much info on the internet about the place?

Us old locals know that shop as BRIGGS shoe shop.If you search KETTERINGHAMS you will see a picture of it.
I went past it this morning and nice to see it painted up. I thought it would make a nice small pub.

To save you looking I have reposted it. And I have combined it with the High Street thread.

Thanks. That's the same photo I saw. I don't ever remember which or any shops there when I was growing up?

Not sure but I think it was BRIGGS until it closed and became a phone shop. I bought three pairs of shoes the day Briggs shut.
