About this image
The business was started by Eric Poynter (originally in Nottingham). His younger brothers Ken and Fred joined the business, hence Poynter Bros. They opened a shop in Heanor, nearby Ripley and then Langley Mill. When Robert Fogg joined the business in the late 70s, they had the 3 shops all run by sons of Eric, Ken and Fred. This picture probably shows a young Eric on the left and possibly his son Keith on the right. The shop is now unfortunately closed. (Information kindly supplied by Robert Fogg).
