There was a lovely pic of here on here ages ago. Took me right back!
I was often sent up the road for 10 Woodies for my Dad, a pack of Condor Sliced for my Grandad and something off the 'penny tray' for me! I would spend ages deciding between four Blacks Jacks or Fruit Salads, a Sherbet Dab, a Penny Arrow Toffee Bar or, would I splurge tuppence for a very thin bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk!?
There was a table with an oilcloth on, on the right, as you went in, where the cart drivers would have a cuppa, their horses outside munching from their nosebags.
After Orange Jubbly's came out, great excitement, Mrs Burns got a freezer and we could get a frozen Jubbly!!!! Heaven on a hot day! Lasted ages!!!!
