~ BUTCHERY LANE ~

ANGEL LANE

CANTERBURY

St. Andrews

Most of the buildings on the right hand side were damaged in the bombing of WW2

A wonderful photo of Butchery Lane from 1907 decorated for Cricket Week. All the beautiful oriental paper lanterns with all different patterns and the gorgeous stone work on the building on the right which was No. 29 St. George's Street, Lloyds Bank, before it was bombed in the blitz. Also the Chemist (Robert Croft c. 1902-17) on the right (on Parade). There is also a gentleman in the doorway of the butchers which I believe is Mr. Henry Cornes.

1896 - At the Canterbury Quarter Sessions, two young men named Richards and Cork, were indicted of stealing a large quantity of corrugated iron and wire netting, the property of their employers, Messrs. Court Bros., and Reuben Nye and Harry Baldock were also indicated of feloniously receiving the same. The case created considerable public interest, as it appeared that the depredations had been going on for a long time. For the defence it was contended that the supervision over the warehouse department had been exceedingly lax. Richards was imprisoned for four months and Cork for three months, the other prisoners being acquitted by the jury.
