Jim Buckley has recently sent this photograph, which he believes was taken at the junction of Harold Street and Burgoyne Road.
The date is unknown but the horse-drawn cart and style of suit would probably place it during the 1930s or 40s. The photo is of Albert Marriott’s ‘Burgoyne Fruit Stores’ at 143, Burgoyne Rd. Jim’s mother recognises Albert Marriott as the man on the left, and the sharp-suited chap on the right could be his son, also Albert. There is a girl or woman giggling in the window of the neighbouring Fish Restaurant.
