“The Vegetable Cart”
This evocative scene was taken at the lower end of Pier Road, Whitby. The building to the left of the photograph is the Neptune Inn, now demolished, one of the many drinking establishments in this area.
The vegetable cart was owned by Mrs Shakeshaft seen here weighing some potatoes. Before she was married she was Miss Annie Paylor, and even today the Paylor family are still involved in the fruit and vegetable business.
