Twaite's Corner
Here is Twaite's corner about 1930 on the junction of Post Office Road and Lynn Road named after the owner of the garage here which burnt down in 1947 but got up and running again until at least 1968. John Thomas Twaite is in the 1925 directory as Motor Engineer and at least until 1935. From at least the 1911 census to the 1922 directory he was a cycle agent. In 1911 John, from Bawsey, was living at at Sunnyside Villa (on Lynn Road approximately where the car on the right is in this photograph) with his wife Annie and son Jack one year old.  See information about the name TWAITE.


Noted that one Samuel Twaite was shown in the 1845 directory as a baker and flour dealer in Dersingham and there was a baker's shop next to the garage.
