About this memory

John R Linton (right) with his children John and Mabel.

“We all worked in the family business. The white coats were laundered weekly. No regular holidays were taken and Wednesday afternoon we closed. I used this time for my leisure: tennis, golf, cycling, motoring. Dad’s life was all shop work.” – Mabel Linton
