Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring so I go back to being myself

What a great photo of Sally McAlpine in her husband Jack's little blue A40 !!
Looking across at Quinn's will hopefully recall a few memories.
They had a great 'Fish Counter"..... maybe in opposition to Mick McCarthy.
One local businessman served his time with Quinn's on the fish counter and then moved across the street to serve his time as a painter with John Grandy & Co. Can anyone come up with his name ?
Nice to see the name of Hugh Bennett's name on the gable of Cunnningham's Bar.
Can anyone come up with a photo of the gable wall of Quinn's ( in King's Lane ) that shows the "Sunshine Lounge" sign writing?

Ah well,it seems posting this photo again has renewed interest in it.I don't think I would have recognised Sally if it hadn't been for the enlarged image on the original post

I remember Quinn's very well.
They would start a Christmas Book
Club.
Don't know exactly when, but if you
joined, you could buy a stamp and
collect them until the books were
full.
I remember shopping around
Christmas time with my Mum,
and she would use these stamps for
the Christmas Grocery List.

Great photo of Quinn's,I worked there during the summer holidays back in the 60's,I wonder if that's the same bicycle I used at the time.One thing about the job that sticks in my memory,is the trek up to Fourth Rd to Mrs, Carville,s a big grocery delivery and of course the really steep driveway,as if the climb up Fourth Rd was not enough.But I must say happy memories.The Manager of Quinn's at the time was Jimmy Morgan.
