Boston May Fair
It’s Boston May Fair time again so we thought we would share this picture. Taken early 1940’s it shows our shop in the background on the left, also Harlow’s the butchers and Lloyds bank on the right with ‘The Stump’ in the distance. A huge crowd surrounds ‘Ling’s High Flier’ swing boats which was situated at the front of the shop during May Fair. The boats have been named ‘Monty’ and ‘Winnie’ in honour of Field Marshal Montgomery and Sir Winston Churchill. A sign to the left of the picture shows the price was 6d a go. Slightly less than the prices today!
You can just make out the ‘9’ from 49 Market Place during the 1940’s before it was Hoppers!
