Golden memories of my father's shop
J Umfreville - provisions, groceries and dairy
My father’s shop stood in the middle of Sydney Road, Tilbury – no 22.
It sold groceries and provisions, and also bottled milk to take out on the horse and cart – which my father did. As a young girl I used to help in the back yard – to put the tops on the milk ready to be sold.
The shop was pulled down in 1953 to make way for new housing. It was rented from Porters and run down.
