Vicar Lane, Number 69, Joseph Bradbury & Sons (City Centre) (4 comments)
Black & White imageDecember, 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.
