The Chesman Family Shops.

Thank you to Pat Edwards for sending me these photo's to share. They are of businesses run in Boston by her family, the Chesman's. She says The Pram Co. was running in the 1940's and as you can see by the reflection of the war memorial in the window it was in Wide Bargate.
The ladies in the doorway L to R are Kath Carrington, Joan Townsend and Joyce Chesman (nee Steward).
The Army and Navy Store was not far down the street. It is Jack Chesman in the doorway. This shop would have been running well into the 1950s and possibly longer she says.
It is also Jack Chesman standing beside one of the vans run by his father Anthony Chesman.
Thank you once more Pat.
