Marcela Bonthron, Colchester, 1920s


Howard Bells recalls of selling eggs from a stall outside the shop:' ‘I had to carry one of these boxes up the stairs, and unfortunately my apron was too long and I tripped going up. Eggs went everywhere – mostly on me! My manager was none too pleased, and I had to pay for some of the breakages.’
