Please include Mr People, the butcher in Salisbury Street, where Hambledon Gallery is now. I moved here in 1976. Mr People always wore a boater hat and one always got a very warm welcome in the shop. And also the Ford family at Ye Olde Pork Shop further down Salisbury Street where the gem shop is now. They were famous for their pork pies and sausages but they also made wonderful cheese and onion pies.ReplyDelete
