Tins of berryfruit packed for market, c.1950. Mrs Griffiths and Joe Griffiths with the first consignment of raspberries and blackcurrants sent to the market about 1950. The truck was Jim Dobson’s1928 Fargo. The practice of sending berryfruit to market was shortlived as the local growers saw it in direct competition to their own businesses.
