Back row: Mrs Ann Denning is carrying my mum Gloria Denning. The boy to Ann Denning's right is Ann's eldest son Roy, the young fair haired boy to his left is her youngest son Ken and the young girl with her arm in front of her face is her eldest daughter Maureen.  My mum has often spoken of this photo and it is great to be able to see it.

This picture is amazing, is there a picture with the shop's name in it? As this is my family's business I would love to see what the shop looked like.

Many thanks
