Hackforth's cafe in Goole


One of Goole's most popular shops was Hackforth's on Boothferry Road. I have recently been asked for any old pictures of the shop and Gilbert Tawn has kindly sent me this picture of the staff.

Not only was Hackforth's a  high class grocer's and bakery but upstairs was a cafe where ladies could  drink morning coffee and take afternoon tea and where many a Goole couple held their wedding reception.
