This post is made possible by Tony who sent us the following photos and memories.
"I hope the attached pics are of interest for the blog: The George & Dragon, Newton and (I remember as a child) "Mr Timperley" the green grocer, the large hessian sacks full of vegetables and the brass scales by the double doors. Inside was all white washed and the doors were (can just remember) always fully open. The steel loading beam above was for a once stables perhaps?

Looking up Bennett Street towards the George & Dragon with Mr Timperleys shop on the right. 1952
The same view 2012.
Note the steel beam is still there !
The new looking motorbike is a BSA A10 Golden Flash 650cc. It's ridged back end dates it circa 1949-1952 although as the pic was taken in 1952 I guess that's the year of the bike. But who is the proud owner I wonder?
