The focal point of these photographs is the shop, 55, Gloucester Road, at the corner of North Gardens. First occupied in the late 1850’s by J Ridge, baker, it remained as a baker’s shop in the same family for more than a century. Examples are – 1877, Isaac Ridge, 1902 Mrs Ridge, 1913 Ridge & Son. It then continued in this name through two world wars and into the its second century. It is listed in Kelly’s Directory for 1960 but by 1962 the bakery has gone. This photograph, taken on 26 August 1988, shows the same shop in different hands, but still with some of the structural features. It still stands on this corner but with three buildings lower down have gone.
