Two photographs showing our shops original frontage which we had from 1932 till the 1980s. Stood in the shop doorway and sat on the old carrier bike is Douglas Sowerby seen here in 1932 aged 14. Douglas is the current owners father, and was Tom John Sowerbys younger brother. It has been a family business with different generations of the Sowerby family working there since it opened in 1932, even now in 2015 the Sowerby family still run the shop with the next generation of father and son at the helm.
