The mad hatter

This is my dad, John Richmond, aged 86 and still working at Fleetwood Market, just north of Blackpool. The stall was his father’s so between them they have clocked up some 70 years, an amazing achievement. As you can see he specialises in hats and gloves from some on the top manufacturers in the UK such as Christies for hats and Dents gloves, both would not be amiss in the West End - possibly the fact dad was born in London to the sound of Bow bells may have a connection here...
