'Ascot Room - CO-OP Buffet Dance'
I hate to think how close this photo (and many others like it) came to being chucked in a skip. The stalls where I buy this stuff from have a tendency to just chuck whatever house clearance stuff they don’t sell at the end of the day. It’s good in that there is always new stuff to look at each week, but sad because so many people’s memories end up in the bin. If I can rescue just a fraction of them then I’ll be happy.

I bought three photo albums from the market today. All have great photos in from the 1940s through to the 1970s.
This first picture isn’t dated but my guess is early 60s. It’s a shot of a Clarks shoe shop Nice to see their displays haven’t changed that much over the years.
