Driving a Travelling Shop

I think it was the biggest travelling shop in the world at that time!

 

One of Remembering the Past’s volunteers spent some of his career driving travelling shops for Laws Stores and the Co-op in the 1950’s.  He worked in Gateshead and Wallsend and had some interesting stories to tell.  In the sound clip that’s attached to this memory you can hear him talking about how he became qualified to drive the travelling shop in the first place.
