Suttons Hardware Shop

High Street, Wickford

Suttons opened their shop in the front room of a house in the High Street, displaying their goods on the pavement in front of the house.

When Suttons burnt down it was rebuilt on almost the same site.

Suttons hardware shop, 1941. The shop was part of their home.

  • What a great little job I had at Suttons.I remember filling paraffin cans (for delivery) before school around 1970. I was 11 years old. I was there with my platform shoes, florescent Sox, Levi jeans, Ben Sherman shirt, and Harrington jacket. And paraffin spillage as after shave!!
    All ready for Beauchamps.

  • I remember the old house. We bought lots of second-hand furniture there in the 1940s.
