SHELDONBOY CALLING ASTONESS, Lyn would you know of a butchers shop, on Victoria Rd. Aston, A Hughes, opposite the swimming baths. It was there around the 1950s. Of course you would be far too young to have shopped in it but you may know a little bit about it from your mom. Any info would be appreciated. Many thanks SB

In 1950 the shop was owned by T.D.Marsh Ltd at 285 Victoria Rd, and as you say your Arthur D Hughes must have taken over some time in the 50's because in the next Kelly's Trade Directory I have he is listed as the owner. Then by 1973 in the next Directory I have there is no listing for 285.
