Scope and content

At the start of the C20th the Townsend family ran a Cycle shop in the house now called No4 Town House, High Street. The photographs show mother Susan with her children Rita, Lucy Elizabeth, Colin. Colin was the father of Phyllis who you can see in the photograph with her brother Nigel taken April 7th 2017. There is a photograph of Susan in her shop doorway with a lovely old car outside which may be a Peugeot. Another picture of Susan in the doorway has her daughter Lucy standing with her and you can see a cycle inside the shop upside down having work done on it. Algernon Colin Townsend was Susan's husband and grandfather of Phyllis and Colin. The picture of Susan in the donkey and trap is outside a local pub but we don't know which one.
