Did the guy on the left have red hair. My mum used to buy her beef joint from there, nearly every Saturday, in the 1960's. The guy with the red hair would give me a kit kat!!!

I have just seen the photo's of Frank King, he was my grandfather's youngest brother, if any one has any information on the King family- butchers, slaughtermen then I would be very interested, I am doing the family history at present

OMG, Is that Lawrence on the left and old Mr King on the right....and.... is that John Marsh next to Lawrence. John who was good mate to Ronnie Hurst and I? and also to young Billy who went on to have a stall in the new market hall.?

Wow, the memories remain....good old days, what? How is Pat?

Fred Rosbottom, do you remember Jim Rutter who sadly died on a treck to the Lakes aged just 19 years? He worked with us at Kings.He was in the Brigade.

Has anyone got a photograph of Lawrence, and which boys brigade was he in?

I am 90% sure that that is my dad that is standing next to Frank King and it must have been around the early 60's
