Paramedic Paparazzo: After a little sabbatical I am back with a new look, I hope you like it.

Here are a couple of photos from my collection - the first was taken around 1980 outside Ellwoods the butcher and Frederick Morley’s.

It looks like that could be a post office bike but I may be mistaken

The second photo, left on the web, shows a way of doing business you rarely see nowadays - taken at the old cattle market.

I remember carpets being sold like this.

Not bad, £39 for a carpet!

Hopefully, readers will remember these people and may well be able to put names to faces.
