Memory lane old sweet shop Ripley

This picture shows an old Ripley sweet shop – Colledge’s.

On the doorstep of the family business is shopkeeper Doreen Colledge and we think her son Andrew, who looks very smart in his tie.

The picture was taken around 1933 to 1935 and the shops looks to be a wonderfully traditional sweet and tobacco shop, which are sadly few and far between in most towns nowadays.
