Most Brighouse town centre shoppers will be familiar with M & A Locks in Bradford Road, the company that has been sorting our door locks and security hardware for just about 30 years. The recent bad weather caused significant damage to a number of shops signs. This photograph just shows how bad the wind and rain has been.
The M & A lock sign was brought down with the bad weather and exposed just for a few days a glimpse into the shop's past. The name of Seaton's, the owners of the shop back in the 1950s. This photograph from 1956 display's the same sign. The parade passing the shop shows the Mayor Alderman Harry Edwards who was the Brighouse mayor for 1956 and 1957. He is accompanied by his wife who was the mayoress.
Seaton's shop is the one next up to the barbers shop which has the electric babers pole outside.
