I remember the Egg Depot as at one time I used to drink in the Millstone with the son of the owner/manager. I'm desperately trying to remember his name which I think was Alan. Maybe all the Barnsley Bitter we drank has finally caught up with me!

Hello Tim, my aunt Mrs Doris Browett worked at the egg depot for twenty five years or may be a little longer until she retired.It must be some twenty years since she worked there but  I feel sure she would have a mine of information about the place. She certainly knew lots of people from those days.

I worked at the egg depot from 1958-1959.The Boss was Mr. Drake and he lived in Emlyns Street.  

I worked in the office and the smell of eggs was dreadful.  One of the perks was a doz eggs cheap.  But I couldn't eat eggs while there, think it was the smell.  Eric Hunt worked with me, later he was postmaster in Ryhall Road Post Office, then moved to Bentley Street.
I think he had a son called Alan.

All eggs were graded - small, medium,large and the producers were paid according to the size of their eggs.
Kate:  Thanks Joan.  Nice to hear from you again.
