Fletcher’s Sauce Bottles
These sauce bottles were bought from Reg who owned the antique shop near St Marys. Fletchers was a Selby company, who made sauces. J.P Fletcher opened the factory in 1915, where their most famous sauces, Titbits and Tiger, were made until HP closed the line in 1994. Courtesy, Angela Robinson.
The shawl belonged to my great grandmother, Mary Jane Welbourn who was born in 1866. It has been passed down through the family. It was purchased from Cheesemans of Selby which was later taken over by Wetherells we are not sure if it is mourning attire or was used as "Sunday best." Courtesy, Catherine Keable.
