  • This picture shows the junction on the way to Daws Heath Road. I think it must have been taken around 1956 as I think the car in the picture is a Ford Prefect {Ed: might be a Consul?} Going down the road you can see the open front of the fishmongers and behind in the distance is the new bus shelter. Opposite the fishmongers there used to be an old newsagents and sweet shop owned by a Mr Ruggins. A favourite trick of children, if Mrs Ruggins wasn’t watching, would be to ask Mr Ruggins to get something from the back of the shop and while eyes were averted help yourself to a gob stopper or a halfpenny chew that were on the front of the counter.

  • Would the house on the left be Dr James’ house? A lovely house knocked down to build those awful shops.

  • What an idea Robert, if I was more mobile I would be out there with my camera.

  • In the last photo, the teacher on the far right looks like Mrs. Alfred Hawks the wife of the Headmaster, my grandfather. The school would be the old Church School, now Sandcastle Nursery.

  • Great photos of old Hadleigh as I remember it, 1920s-30s.

  • What a marvellous collection. Are there dates with any of the pictures or postcards? Makes me want to pick up the camera again and try and re-photograph all the places.

  • I wonder what the occasion was? Or did Hadleigh ladies always dress in such fashionable finery?
