Ferndale Road stores Banstead

This is Ferndale Stores in Banstead. The photo was taken some time between 1952 and 1957. The grocery shop was once owned by Geoff Pushman's mother Mrs. Pushman who later became Mrs. Almond.

Mark Newell was looking for something and came across this photograph and so sent it to us. His Father, Alick (A.C. Newell) and an unknown assistant are behind the counter.

It is hard to imagine that this was the mode of shopping for many years. Note the various groceries on display. You can see Kelloggs Corn Flakes, Quaker Puffed Wheat, Lyons Swiss Roll and Pearce Duff's Blancmange. On the shelves there are an array of jams, tinned soups and cocoa. Shopping was much more interesting in those days, and you could always catch up with the local gossip.

What a strange coincidence! I only remember a family in Lyme Regis Road with this name and they were in no way related to my husband's family who came from Hampshire. The lady in the photo is Ann who was an assistant for quite a long time I believe - as a child I can remember seeing her weighing up sugar into blue sugar bags in the shop!
