The cycle shop was built by the Italians who were encamped opposite to where my grandfather lived. Up until the wooden shop was demolished there was a nail near the back door denoting the height of an extremely high Italian named Puggy who helped construct the building. The bungalow which was built by Harrod Means of Upwell combined with plot of land cost in total £300.
