Britton the Broadstairs Butcher

The picture above shows Albert Brett, Mr Shepard and Bert Toop standing outside Brittons the butchers in Broadstairs where they worked, now Rook’s butchers.

I have published the rest of the collection of photos click here to view them.

I have added the names where they were on the back of the pictures.
Please add any more information you have.


  1. cheers Michael love old butchers shops as I once worked in one

  2. Chaps in suits on the beach smoking pipes and woodbines, exactly how it should be. Football tops, shorts and sports sandalls of today are so vulgar.

  3. Pleasure Don the older generation locally are getting wise to the fact every time the let me copy some of their pictures I give them a high quality A4 lazar prints of the for free. So I am getting some rather unusual ones at the moment.

    Bertie perhaps there is an unrepealed bylaw or something

  4. Jim Brett was my grandfather, Albert Brett and Rose Brett (Bearman) my Great Grandparents. Haven't seen these photos before. Nice to see them. Thankyou

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
