Mary Street Remembered
Two family pictures sent in by Aiden Prince whose family home was once on Mary Street.
Here's Mrs Prince and Aiden's brother JP along with the dog... The Prince family lived next door to my paternal grandparents Thomas and Sarah Wigley on Mary Street.
Aiden's brother Kevin sat at the family table looking at a loaf of bread. Aiden mentioned that there was always a loaf of bread on the table and it triggered a memory in me about my grandparents who also had bread on show. It got both me and Aiden wondering if there was a reason for this. I'm aware of the saying 'Putting Bread On The Table' which meant you had money to supply sustenance for the household or the man of the house was in Work and providing for the family. If you know more or have any thoughts on this please let use know.
