An undated image showing the Deeping Show.
Many thanks to William Wade for this undated image of Deeping High Street.
William adds, “I thought you might like this photograph of the High Street, Market Deeping. The house on the right was called “The Park” and belonged to my family. The next one along was a solicitors office (now demolished) called Sharpe and Wade and built for my great grandfather. The next row of brick houses was built to replace a row of thatched cottages which was demolished for the widening of Godsey Lane (then Tinker’s’ Lane). The photograph was taken before the War (probably the 1st) as the railings went to aid the war effort.”

Robert Stockwell adds ……
“The street shown is Church Street, Deeping St James. The shop is now a bakers.
The shop in the photograph is called Shillaker. From the 1901 Census the owner was John Shillaker (b. abt 1842 Towngate, Market Deeping). His son Beauvais (b. abt 1883), also worked in the shop.
Frank Rignall Wilderspin (b. abt 1873 Chatteris), in the 1911 Census, is a shop owner (Draper, Grocer and Milliner) in Church Street, Market Deeping. In the 1901 Census he is living in Glinton, an employee Draper & Grocer.
EDIT: I’ve checked the location again and in fact the bakery is prior to the shop shown in the photograph. This is also confirmed in the 1901 Census. I have also checked this with the current owner of the bakery. The shop in the photograph no longer exists.”

Looking down to the church from the main crossroads with Garratt’s store on the left and Sandersons on the right. Note the horses tied up in the far distance.
This image was marked as Market Deeping but no idea of exactly where or when – would love to find out if you know more !
Claire Osborne adds, “I think it is 29 Church Street, Market Deeping.”
