Next up in our series of Terry Shelbourne’s photos is this snap of former Grantham business The Little Dustpan.

The store on Westgate was run by ironmongers Collards, and sold everything you needed to keep your home in tip-top condition.

Terry, the Journal’s cartoonist, remembers that the shop was there back when he was a pupil at St Anne’s School, years before he started painting signs and worked on the store front himself.

“Everyone knew The Little Dustpan, and the manager George Gash,” adds Terry.

Although the shop closed in 1982, the symbolic dustpan can still be seen on the building.
