By Irene Rowland (Pritchard)
I remember my Aunty working on the North Gate and my sister and I used to go and meet her from work we would go to the north gate and she would be totting up her takings and would let us in to have a walk round till she finished. My other Aunty Mrs Peacock worked on the South Gate. We loved going to the zoo and Mr Mottershead was very kind to his staff he used to give my aunty a very expensive bottle of perfume every christmas. I still live in Upton and go to the zoo at least once a year with my grandchildren.
