I bought this small photograph (2 x 3″) from a regular contact at Shrewsbury car boot sale a few weeks ago. The information with this photograph reads ‘Move day New Town family 1930’s’. It’s a bit faded around the edges but it tells a story and there are a few clues to the location. The sign on the right reads ‘farmers’ although I have been unable to read the text on the building itself. Look how smart they all look, perhaps they were trying to make a good impression on their new neighbours!
