Does anyone remember the Ford family, bakers of Reepham?

The Reepham Archive recently received some old photos from a descendent of the Ford family, who were bakers in the town and lived in the house next to what was formerly the Old Brewery House in Market Place.

The family wonder if anyone can identify the people in the photos and where the photos were taken.

The first photo shows seven young people sitting on a low wall, the railings behind are quite distinctive. On the reverse is written “Abbots Pride”. It is thought to be taken in Reepham.

The second photo is of an unknown family: five people, possibly three generations, with a black dog in a garden, taken around 1930. The people are likely to be related to, friends of, or worked for, the Ford family.

If anyone has a photograph of Walter Ford, who died aged 75 in 1980, the family would also be pleased if they could have a copy of it.

Please contact the Reepham Archive by email with any information.
