A Brigg family business which has been a feature of the town since Victorian times has reopened from Coronavirus emergency lockdown.
Wallhead's - the quality outfitters on the corner of Wrawby Street and Cross Street - returned yesterday (Monday, June 29).
Our late morning picture shows proprietor Richard Wallhead outside his premises.
His great-grandfather founded the business in 1897 - the year in which Queen Victoria celebrated her diamond jubilee as monarch.
The recent closure represented the longest period Wallhead's shutters had remained down in 123 years.
The current proprietor says: "It's good to be back." Other Brigg shop owners have been saying the same of late as our businesses look to get back to normal.
