Co-op queue picture

Have your say

The photo in Retro on July 25 showing the queue outside the Co-Op Northern Avenue in Retro was taken on the day of the first opening of a self-service Co-Op shop ever.

Also I think the date on the winding tower at Maltby Pit is wrong as I worked on this tower in 1962 putting the engine driver’s cabin in for British Thomson-Huston. Our first job was to put a 13amp plug in for his kettle before we did erecting anything else. Good old days.
