Hart's Butchers

My mother, Eva Mower, was born in Tilbury in 1917 and lived there until 1940.  Hart's butchers shop was situated in Calcutta Road. In this photo you can see part of the sign for Cramphorn Ltd seed merchant, the shop next door.

My father managed Harts through 50s-70s. He also worked in the St Chads Road shop, the branch in Chadwell and in Linford.

Could you tell me the date of this photo, please. My grandfather worked in a butcher's shop in Tilbury in the 1890s. I am working on his memoirs, and would be very interested to know if this was the shop he worked in. If so, please could I copy it, into his memoirs. (For family use only) Thank you very much, Evie Edworthy

Sorry for taking so long to respond to your posts. I'm afraid I don't know who the men in the photo are, David nor do I know the date of the photo. It has a postcard back but no details of the publishers. As it wasn't postally used there is no postmark to give a clue as to the date. Certainly you may copy it Evie, but sorry I can't give you any more information.
