Jean Smith.png

Jean Smith - aged 69 when the photograph was taken - was born in Ammerham near Winsham in 1934.


"My parents came from Chard Junction, they were both in service. My father later worked as a driver for the milk factory. Grandpa Guppy came from Beaminster and Grandpa Perrot had a wooden arm with a hook on the end."

"Mr Appleby Senior used to come, always in a very dark businesslike suit, and he used to sit at the dining room table and take the order from mother, and reel off things in case she had forgotten anything. And then the groceries would come. And a bread van from Winsham. Mr Milden was the baker then."
