Co-operative Stores, Brotton

The magnificent frontage has been radically altered over the years and obviously was at one time the premier building on the High Street. How times have changed. The image is taken from a postcard produced by Portass, Photographer, Milton Street Saltburn and bears an extensive Christmas message. Unfortunately the stamp and hence dating is more problematical, possibly late 1890’s.

    I lived in Brotton( The Avenue) from 1944 – 1962.
    Opposite the CO-OP was a drapers and wool/ needlework shop run by Beatie Quick. I remember her shop Sign was B.Quick. Also just below the photo was a busy blacksmith .
