  • BCA - 2022.3722
  • Item
  • 1829 1916

Shadrack Hayden, known as Shadrack 'Shepherd' Hayden was a wonderful singer of folk music at a time when there were still many people who could not read and write and social history was past on very much in folks songs. His life was one of a shepherd and family man and makes for very interesting reading. In the photograph he is seen with one of his grandchildren.
You can hear the wonderful songs Shadrack sang on YouTube

The original Duttons shop

  • BCA - 2021.2552
  • Item
  • c1880-1960

This is the original Duttons shop in Bridge Street somewhere about 1880. Note at this time there were just two windows, not four that are there today.

In the second picture you can see George Dutton on the left and the 15 year old boy is William Mathews who a few years later bought the shop from George. George was not brilliant at running a shop but the Midland Bank established a counter within it which George ran and he was very good at figures. When the bank took over the premises next door to the butcher, he moved to be the fulltime teller and that's when he sold the shop to William.

The third picture was taken in 1960. Note the cycle rack stand. Dr Bullen's wife is on the left of the picture.
