Virtual walk along St Anns Well Road and The Wells Road

Recommended Posts

Lovely to see a reference to the Marsdens store,,as it became a Vernons self service store about 1962,,the first self service store in St Anns, 

       I was sent there for the opening two weeks, and later same year as relief manager for mr Gamble,funny how his name just came to me, 

         I particulary recall this shop because it was the busiest i had worked at,at that time,,very small but employed about 20 staff,forever having to go out and push the blind back after a trolley bus had nudged it,,

Thanks Engineer for reviving some nice memories,,
