Do you remember?

THERE were quite a few butcher's hooks - looks - when one London tradition doffed its cap to Cardiff....

This pony-drawn trolley by-passed the M4 motorway to call in at the capital's Bessemer Road wholesale fruit market - boasting Fruit for Wales - in 1990 to salute the institution's 25th anniversary. Leading the miniature trolley is Simon Evans of Nelson with George Smalley, on the left, who was president of the National Federation of Fruit and Wholesales Trades.

Pictured on his right is Brian Critcher, the then chairman of the Bessemer Road Wholesale Fruit Centre. If you recognise any of the characters or have any memories of the market, you can contact us in writing at Do You Remember? Thomson House, Havelock Street, Cardiff, CF10 1XR.
