A lot can happen in 70 years

IT just shows how times have changed.

My father, John Howard, bought 35 High Street, Huntingdon, from the two daughters of Sir Michael Foster in 1930 and opened a fishmongers in the former doctor’s surgery.

My family had a fishmongers in East Street, in St Ives, beforehand, where I was born in 1929.

Through the Second World War we sold fish and chips, which was really loved by people as it wasn’t rationed.

Now the building is a Cash Converters and another shop, which is closed. It just demonstrates that a lot can happen in 70 years.
