Yes, Wragg, not Whittaker.  Wasn't Whittaker's in Chatham?

I remember Clifford Wragg having a finger missing, like me  :)  I chopped the top half of mine off on the bacon slicer in my Dad's shop when I was 5.  If I recall correctly, Clifford chopped the top of his off in the chip-cutting machine.

Health and Safety... :)

...the Shop on the corner of Wickham street is now a hairdressers.

Actually, I knew that - I made a return visit to my old haunts in (about) October 2 years ago with "Her Aussiness" (my new wife  :)).  I think it's been a hairdressers for a while.  I seem to recall it being like that from visits when I had a customer in Chatham Dockyard some years ago.

I'm stunned that Muntons is still surviving though in it's "original" form.  I thought just about everyone used the supermarkets now.  Where I live in Harrogate, the only "local" shops are either the Esso service station, "Sainsburys at Jacksons" or "Tesco Express".

Jeepers, I remember that shop so well.

At the other end of Rose street was Whittakers (spell?) fish shop btw, on the left as you look at the background of the picture.

My dad had the grocers on the corner of Wickham street (next to the Rose pub) and when we didn't have something to complete a customers weekly order (remember those anyone?) I'd be sent first to Days a little way up Wickham street and then to Muntons if Days didn't have it.  If Muntons didn't have it then we'd just cross it off the list.

Not sure when the picture was taken, but I'm certain that we served the house with the car on the right outside it (Renault?).

My in-laws have told me that before this shop beloned to the Muntons it was Adares shop.The Adares moved to a bigger shop nearer or on the Delce.The Muntons took over in about the mid 60's.I have taken a photo of the shop but can't figure out how to upload it!
