      When he and Susan married they were given two wedding presents, a teapot and a jar of home made strawberry jam (They have been passed down the family ever since)
      Susan was told "Don't use the jam until you are desperate" given to them by a woman for who Susan worked house cleaning. The jam was used during the hard times in the 1920's on stale bread given by a local baker.
      During these times Uncle Albert went house to house in Lofthouse Gate selling wet fish from a handcart, wore white cap & apron, later did the same with cakes and confectionary made at home.

      Later bought own house in First Avenue, Newton Hill. When daughters Alice and Florrie trained as pastry cooks and confectioners he bought a bakery in Bramley, Leeds.
      Daughter Ivy and Walter moved into the House on First Avenue, when they left to live in Leeds it was rented out, my brother George collected the rent for them in the late 1930/early 1940's.
      Later Uncle Albert owned fish & chip shop in Armley, followed by others, one opposite Armley Jail, other in Stanningley
      Purchased Bakery in Goole in 1940's, daughter Alice and family ran the business.

      Retired to a bungalow in Leeds, later went to live in Bridlington with Daughter Ivy and family.
      He was annoyed with members of his family who emptied his bungalow and shared the contents ("apart from a part tin of paint with used brush on top") without him knowing.
