What price Salmonella then,no refrigeration,meat hung outside open to the elements , yet people survived. I read recently that the biggest reason for increased longevity, more so than all the drugs,is hygiene .
This is great, Maxine. A real bit of Abram History.
Higsons had the shop when we lived in Fisher Ave, that was in the early 50s
Aubrey died in the 1950's and the family moved to the Blackpool area.Aubrey's son Brian was a mate of
mine and was in the same class as me at Abram school.Behind the Butchers shop there was as abattoir but I can't remember it being used.
Was talking to Roy Livesey and he remembers the slaughterhouse being used. He said as kids they used to sit and watch what went on!
