Carlin How Shop

A different view of the square at Carlin how showing, Skinningrove Amicable Industrial Society, or as it became known Porritt’s shop. How clean and presentable they were then even without all the mod cons we have. Bill Kitching tells us: ”This shop was the cobbler`s shop by Fred Hasseldine from before the war. He had a daughter and son Roland who played cricket for Loftus. Reg Porritt a United bus driver took it over from Hasseldine.”
