As a toddler my grandmother often used to take me in during the 50's. Can still picture the insides with its tins of Household paint, toys and drawing pads etc. she used to call it Freddie Woolworths.

It was the early 60s when we used to go into Woolworths. I lived in Burnley but often stayed at my aunties in Crawshawbooth. Woolworths sold everything.

Re: old woolworths in rawtenstall

Is this what your thinking of. The photo has no date on it but I would think around the mid 1960s.
