    I am not sure that there would be Ice Cream for sale in the shop in 1922 as Stanhoe did not have electricity connected until the 1940’s as Mrs Blackburn describes in her recordings.

    Fern Cottage, or the shop, became the home of Mr and Mrs Percy Bloy and their daughters Doreen and Beryl, Mr Bloy ran a taxi at one stage, and a paper round was run from the shop. Hospital Sunday , and a health insurance scheme too I think, was one of their occupations .
    Both Doreen , as Doreen Bullock, and Beryl, as Beria George ,have contributed widely to our Archive.

    Mrs Goss and her daughter Ella, 1922. Mrs Bloys shop closed in the early 1970’s.
    In the 1950’s it was a wonderful place to visit with some pocket money as it sold 1d packets of crisps (broken) and sweets, and liquorice, and sherbet, which might be treats on the walk home from school..
