Anthony Newton of West Barnby

Anthony Newton of West Barnby – an old countryman who was lame from falling off a hayrick in his teens and always walked with 2 sticks, but who grew superb vegetables and won prizes in every major show for miles around. The cottage shown had a coal fire and until about 1949 – no electricity – this image was taken in 1953 by Lionel Richardson of Loftus (photographer and postcards) whose family business preceeded Fords at the top of Station Road.
