The next picture shows Arthur outside the shop, which was located in Market Street in what is today Betty’s Boutique.
The picture after that shows Gordon’s uncle Mick Curtis, who worked as a saddler and harness maker at the shop. Both he and Arthur, lived in Newtown, off Halton Road.
The final picture is a family photo – it shows Gordon’s grandparents, his mother Dolly, cousins Jane (right) and Gerald (front) and himself (middle).
He said: “I lived with my Mum for about 20 Years in Louth and in my early to mid-teens cycled to my grandparents and had some great holidays there. Uncle Mick used to take me fishing and I made several friends in Newtown – there was Pauline Swanson, known as Swanee, Mo Smith, Freddie Wright, and Maurice Brough.”
