editorial image

This really is an old photograph.

Reader Gordon Caunt sent in this photograph of his father stood outside of his grandfather’s shop W.Caunt’s boot and shoe makers.

The shop was near Skegby old school and Whitehead Lane.

What an insight into the streets of Ashfield in years gone by this photo is. Gordon would love to know if anyone out there remembers the shop. Get in touch via
