Kathleen Glancy - George Burn's Shop

1950

About this memory

We had no telephone and relied on the phone box to make calls and occasionally Lizzie in George Burns shop would let you use hers for emergency only.

Burns shop sold a bit of everything and fresh rolls in the morning.

Torbett's shop was a favourite for sweets especially as it was across from the school. Lemon sherbets,spangles,McGowans toffee but favourite of all Penny Dainties.A toffee wrapped in green and red waxed paper.If you were short of a penny,he would sell you half a one.It was then we were introduced to the new fizzy drink VIMTO.
