    I remember an early review of Meltons describing the restaurant as being in a “down at heal area”. I have always thought it was, but on reflection (after seeing this picture) I realise that even before Meltons people were buying Agas.

    The double doors seen to the left of the private shop on Scarcroft Road, led into the back yard of Traps Dairy. I used to enter that yard to pay Mrs Trap for milk they had delivered to us in Russell Street in the 1970s.

    I also recall mums in the area protesting on Scarcroft Road to prevent the private shop being given a licence – to no avail.

    I too remember the trapps dairy. Seem to remember girls around my age. Novak the clock shop was opposite. Next door to Trapps was a hairdressers in the 50’s and 60’s. We lived at 18 Scarcroft road . Margaret was Robertson.
