Goole on the Web

Subject:Old photos of Boothferry Road

I was amazed to look on your web site and see pictures of my Grandparents shop in Boothferry Road called Sheppards Music Shop. The shop was owned by my Great Grandfather and then his son. My Grandfather married the Saturday girl Alice and she ran the shop while Bert did repairs to the Pianos and radios that were sold in the shop. Bert died in 1958 but Alice lived for many years in Scarborough and only died in 1999 aged 92. How lovely to see a photo of the shop. My mother and father and sister still live in Goole and I return often to visit.

Love the site
