Interview Transcript

Graham: There was a pet shop and the woman in there, her name was May, she wore a brown, sort of old fashioned like ‘open all hours’, brown overall which was fat in the crosser, tied at the back, and she would wear a beret. And she would have dog meat that was sort of catering size, huge big tins, and open it out and you would buy it by the slice. And she had a brother, George, who sort of dispensed his own sort of medication for sick dogs and all that. And I remember we went in there and you could buy loose dog biscuits and all the rest of it, and her telling me that nothing wrong I could eat one of them, so I did. Of the dog biscuits, I can tell you they didn’t do any harm.
