Maypole Dairy store but where?
« on: Tuesday 11 December 18 11:52 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find the location of this branch of Maypole Dairy Co Ltd. The proprietor's name seems to be Abraham Al........ Does it look familiar to anyone?

I think the Abraham chap was next door, different business. Just prior to starting his career as a full time musician, my dad worked for the Maypole for a few months after leaving school at the end of the 1930s. 60 hours a week for 12/6d (as he never tired of informing me...lol).

Yes, it's an Abraham Altham shop (tea merchants)

Seems Abraham ended up with 64 tea shops  https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/news/11329846.entrepreneur-abraham-altham-started-working-life-in-stone-quarry/  so that gives scope for plenty of searching  :D

Is one or more of your ancestors in the photo?  If so - that could help narrow down the location.  If not - where have you got the photo from?

Thanks all for your input so far. The photo came with a collection of postcards, mostly Yorkshire but some from Lancashire.  :)

As the postcard appears to be intended for 'Master Kevell'.........does that turn up anywhere?

I thought it said Master Ernest Revell and there is a cross indicating he is the young man on the right as you look at the photo.
