People are always talking about the shops of days gone by, so this week we feature one of the best known shops of its days Cottingham Bros.

The business started in the 1920s as a pork butchers in the town’s Queen Street and earned the slogan - North, South, East and West Cottingham sausages are the best.

It then expanded into the neighbouring shop with grocery and again with a bakery.

The picture above is from the 1970s and shows John Cottingham, right, with manager Cyril Carlisle.

The picture is part of a collection of images recently given to Rase Heritage by the Cottingham family.
