I remember watching my Uncle Alf filling ready made blue bags on the scales in my Grandparents' shop, Tungates on Station Road. He was a dab hand at folding the tops of the bags in so that no spillages would take place after they were sold.
Oranges and apples came in wooden boxes that could be converted into children's seats. Bananas came in really sturdy boxes with a hinged lid and were about 4 or 5 feet long, holding a long string of hands of bananas. How times have changed.
