    Walter Willeys Shop, Park Road, Elland
    Walter Willeys Shop, Park Road, Elland
    One of my favourite photographs passed down through the family is this one which belonged to my grandmother Connie Darwin. Her uncle Walter Willey and his wife Charlotte owned a shop in Elland, Halifax, Yorkshire.

    My grandmother used to tell us how, as a young girl in the 1920's she visited here often to see her cousin Gaye. Obviously milking poor old Walter for all the sweets the could!

    After a bit of searching I have found the exact location of the shop, which is now part of the car park of the Barge & Barrel Pub.

    At the bottom of this photo you can see Walter Willeys shop. The Old Bus carcass in the yard was used as a seating area for the serving of refreshments and snacks.

    This was originally a black and white photo which I have enhanced and coloured.
