Paula Brown explains, "The shoe shop picture shows my Great Granddad proudly outside the shop he was manager of in the Landport area. He sold and mended shoes and my Great Aunt Joan, now in Australia, used to deliver the mended shoes on the family pet goat.
"The sad story is that the shop closed and my Great Granddad immediately found work on the railway, where he was killed in an accident shortly after starting there, while his wife was pregnant with my Granddad. Consequently, I never got to meet my Great Granddad and he never got to meet his youngest son."
