    A search of the 1911 census tells me that Gershon Perchick, born 1882 in Russia and his wife Sara ran a grocer’s shop at 95 Old Montague Street. I assume that this photograph is it.

    Perchicks is numbered 76 and I believe this shop was in Old Montague Street almost opposite the junction with Casson Street. We used to call it “the little old womens shop” and used to buy broken biscuits there. The street numbers would match up as Samuels fruit and veg numbered 50 was further up Old Montague Street towards Brick Lane. Two elderly women ran the shop and we somehow assumed they were sisters but maybe not.

    I believe what happened was that after my great grandfather died, my great great aunt ran the shop with my great grandmother.
