Old Photos of Witham

Albert Mondy and his shop at 63 Newland Street

Taken: 1926-1935, Ref: M1806

Mondy’s ironmongers’ shop at 63 Newland Street. Albert Mondy the owner in front of shop. Low part on right was part of the Mondys’ house, with living room at front. Crenellations on parapet were removed after the Mondy’s sold it in 1951. They also lived over the shop; the bathroom was over the archway. In M1807 it has bars in front whilst in this photo it hasn’t. Nyria didn’t remember bars from 1945-51 so perhaps this photo is the later one. Also this one has a pole (perhaps a telephone pole ?) on the right whilst M1807 does not. Mondy’s got the phone about 1926 judging from various phone directories. Also Mr Mondy looks older on this one. Small part of 61 Newland Street on left and of 65 Newland Street on right.
