Sunday morning papers"

Brunswick Road, Buckley


from "An Industrial and Pottery Walk round Buckley", which is in the library.




Until the 1970s, newspaper supplies on a Sunday were only available from a wooden shed alongside Stevenson's Cycle Shop. The supplier came from outside of Buckley - not one of the established newsagents. Young people used discarded prams stored nearby to tour most streets in Buckley selling Sunday newspapers. Customers from outlying districts journeyed to the depot for Sunday news.


The shop was opposite the Tivoli.
