Image shows Miss Kitty Lister and her staff on the day of her retirement from the family butcher's business, Lister's English Meat Purveyors, at number 135 Lower Town Street, seen in the background. The shop had originally been run by her parents, Harry and Emma (nee Shaw) Lister. It was located on the corner with Farrar's Yard (right edge). Her Uncle Walter also ran a butcher's shop, for 52 years, at number 266 Upper Town Street, on the corner with Bell Lane. Kitty Lister's shop was subject to a compulsory purchase order in 1975 to make way for new development in that part of Town Street. She was eventually relocated to a flat in Snowden Fold, located across the road. Kitty was a well-known character in Bramley and an active supporter of Bramley Rugby Union League Football Club. She died in the May of 2002.
