Saturday mornings in the 70's
....that's the 1970's not the 18's I hasten to add. Though, as far as I remember, the shop front wasn't a whole lot different from the picture above...the guy behind the counter probably had the same moustache but maybe had shortened his apron and ditched the jacket in favour of a tie-dyed t-shirt. Bullock's the Bakers was conveniently placed at the end of the street (Albany Gdns) on Station Rd....and they still baked their own bread and did a mean bacon sandwich.....so the perfect excuse not to learn the intricacies of the frying pan when there was plastering and hanging of radiators to be done. Long gone and not sure what it is these days, it's not on my way home from the station....but I have a sneaking feeling it's a tattoo parlour.
