Vicar Lane, Number 69, Joseph Bradbury & Sons
Description:
December, 1935. A fleet of vans are parked outside the pork butchery business of Joseph Bradbury and Sons at number 69 Vicar Lane. A sign at the first floor says 'The County Pork Shop'. The successful business of Joseph Bradbury, 'Porky Joe', eventually became part of Farm Stores Ltd., then part of Associated Dairies ltd. Associated Dairies Ltd. bought the interests of supermarket entrepreneurs, Peter and Fred Asquith, retaining them as joint Managing Directors, and Asda Stores Ltd. was born. At the left edge the entrance to the County Arcade is visible, now part of the Victoria Quarter. To the right of Bradbury's is The Robin Hood Hotel at number 71 Vicar Lane.

A very none and trite comment by Steven Wainwright. I wonder, is he any relation of the Wainwrights who my great grandfather worked for and who were later bought out by the Bradbury business. I'll have the courage to put my email address!

I have an original of this picture. It is 12 / 8 1/2. I also have 3 other picures. One has the number 69 above the door with an older man standing at the side of the window. A staff picture and one of #42. Somebody in my family must of worked there but I don't know who. Could of been a Yates,Hemsworth or Stott?
