Oh, how I would love to walk in there! What a brillint photo of how shops used to be.
Great photo. Remember going into Morton's, a great shop, brings back loads of memories.
I love this photo.. where was Mortons in Hindley? Did they used to have something to do with the Church of Christ in Argyle ST.. name rings a bell..
Mortons was at the lower end of Market Street. It later became a pet shop and the building is still there, just past Madisen Hall on the same side going towards the traffic lights at the Bird.
I love the brown paper carrier bags hung on the wall, far right, with an advert on them. I have one here at home with a butcher's advert on it, as well as some plain ones. There were no plastic carriers then.
That is what I call a shop! Wish there were some like that now.
And they were open All Hours.
I remember this shop in the 50s, it even had a delivery service, it was a lad on a bicycle with a very large basket on the handlebars.
the people who had something to do with the church of christ who were shopkeepers were called Morgan there shop was at the top of argyle street
I think there was a similar type of shop called Morgan's at the top of Chapel Green Road until not so long ago.

Hi Colin. Sad to hear about John's mum - she would have been the last of the original All Saints Grovers. You've got a great memory, remembering Sandy Lane and my Aunty Dolly in Durham Road! Let's hope we've a champion team this year, eh?
