Memories of Bargate in Boston

by Ralph Ottey Dudley Bryant

This book looks at the changes in Boston town over the last 50+ years following a walking route from the northern end of the Market Place, along Strait Bargate into Wide Bargate, along the western side, including Central Park and Boston Business Park, into Bargate End as far as Bargate Bridge and returning to the Market Place via the eastern side of Wide Bargate including Pescod Square.  

Of the family businesses present in 1949 there are a few that still remain such as: Oldrids, Cammack and Sons, Coneys, Carrs, Enderby, Lyells, Shephards, Moulders, Hutson and Hopper and though Boston has now lost its Sheep market there is still a thriving market including the Auction Market on Wednesdays. 

Supported by many photographs, old and new this delightful book gives the reader a wonderful trip down memory lane.

Other titles available (through this site) by Ralph Ottey include; Stranger Bwoy, You'll Never get a job here and Memories of Boston Market Place
