Meraki Hair, Bridge Street, Swinton - 30.05.17

24 Bridge Street, Swinton

24 Bridge Street is currently the location of ‘Meraki Hair’. In earlier years it had been occupied by Harold Lowe and at the back was a slaughterhouse. Before or after Harold Lowe, it was a Chemist’s shop. Later, it became a motorbike shop belonging to Peter Cresswell. Pete was fond of dogs and even owned a black Labrador that would suck a dummy outside of the shop on the pavement. When Pete died in 1989, many people attended his funeral on motorbikes. Pete’s wife, Margaret, kept the shop open for a few more years. Until last year, the building was occupied by ‘Barrons Hair Salon’.
