Delivering groceries on a bike

The outside of Welwyn Stores

My father and his brother worked in the original Welwyn Stores.  I think the photo shows them outside the shop in the late 1920’s.

He told me that when he first started he was a delivery boy and he delivered groceries on a bike to the first houses when they were being built.

  • I now suspect that Roger Filler was correct and I was talking nonsense!

  • I suspect that this is in fact the original small Welwyn Stores, located between Parkway and Guessons Road, WGC.

  • This must be the Welwyn Stores in the village of Welwyn, rather than the Welwyn Stores building in the centre of Welwyn Garden.
