Tollworthy's was one of the many butchers in the Old Laindon High Road
One of our old community Ken Page, who escaped to the Antipodes has been asking me for some time to put some pictures up of Tollworthy’s Butchers shop and has even sent me a photograph of his mum working in the shop. I have finally been able to create a reasonable photograph of the outside of the shop to assist with the memories of others.
The top picture is looking north from the East side of the High Road just north of the S bend over the railway. The following two photographs are enlargements homing in on Tollworthy’s In the above photographs you can see one of our other Butchers, so competition was greater in Laindon then than now, sorry I forgot we have no butchers in Laindon only a meat counter in a supermarket.
The last photograph is in Tollworthy’s of Kens mum and colleague.
