Sausages or bacon anyone ? 

 

Algy do you have an actual photo of this shop as I seem to remember seeing one of it on here at some time and it can only have been from you.

 

Receipt dated 1895 and what a lovely ornate invoice receipt.  Did they only sell food stuffs ?

One of life's treats to walk into Bayley isaacs and get a pie straight out of the oven - and hope the sergeant didn't catch you.   So many bakeries in that area. Of course, BI's pies were all part of a great afternoon out at Wilderspool - the whole caboodle for much less than two shillings.

 

Stallard mentions an oakwood shop - i remember one opposite Oakwood school, but much more vividly Titmas bakery on the corner of Padgate lane opposite to the co-op (still business premises now).

 

This will be very old news, but new to me  - no cobblers by the entry at the top of Hallfields road -  so many happy memories

 

Happy days

That is the shop I remember.  Should we be playing in Oakwood school playground, or sometimes just passing by, we'd call in.  Threepence spending would be the absolute maximum.

 

Oakwood was a lovely area, full of very nice people, and my associates from around there all lived for sport.

Great pic Algy but it's a shame it doesn't show the whole building as it was on the old invoice eh?  Damn photographers in those day as they do frustrate me at times :lol:

 

Stallard, Harry.......were they just on the ground floor when you remember them as they do look rather grander than just being a pie shop/butchers type place on the receipt image I posted and are you both on that pic getting your pies (joking of course)

 

 

As for you working away from home Algy, well I class it more like you being absent without approved leave so be careful and just remember where you first 'enlisted' and belong :lol:    Maybe you need to split yourself 40/40 and the remaining 20% your wife can have... or is that still way too much for her?   :P  :lol:
