Crick of Crick's Corner
What a wonderful photograph! This is Milbury Ellen Crick outside the family shop in Dartmouth Park Hill, which is still known as Crick's Corner.
The photo was taken in the 1920s. It was very kindly sent to me by Colin Crick, Milbury Ellen's grandson, who found it among his father's papers. He found references to Crick's Corner on this blog, which is what prompoted him to get in touch.
Milbury Ellen Crick had three sons - including Albert, who went on to run the shop - and a daughter.
Crick's Corner is now an excellent coffee shop, and some of the old signage remains (see the last photo below, the sign is slowly becoming illegible). I've given a print out of the 1920s photo to the cafe and I do hope they put it on display.
