As an aprentice in the 1940s I would have called in this little shop while working at Pearson's mill and Smith's Crain work's were Marsh Jone's and Cribb painting firm were working, I would be on my way to Rodley bottom getting cigarettes and bread cakes for the men, I could only get 5 cigarettes at a time so it took me a while to get enough for 15 to 20 men. It was quite a walk from Pearson's Mill but on a fine morning I thought it was a nice change from were I lived in New Wortley.
