Furness Vale Co-op

Another fine photograph digitally coloured by David Easton. When he sent the photo in he also said:-

Red seems to be the correct colour although I don't know about the shade. I'm guessing that the date is before WWI because the name changed in 1913 to Whaley Bridge and Buxton Co-op although they may have been slow in changing the sign. The tall man on the left is Sam Shatwell and next to him Percy Hulme. I understand that they later opened a shop in Horwich End.
