From an article possibly from the Rotherham Advertiser or The Sheffield Star
"To work in a coal mine until the age of 43, and without any previous business experience step out of the mine and launch a successful business is a very rare achievement". Fred was " a keen angler" who "liked nothing better than a few days fishing a few miles out of Bridlington and around Flamboro. Two assistants were employed at the commencement of his business career. With assiduity and keen business enterprise, Mr Foster's stores began to expand into a large modern emporium with many departments and over 100 employees. These departments embrace grocery, provisions, butchery, drapery, boots, clothing, furnishings, wireless, and beer-off, all fitted up in an attractively built range of shops near the brow of Whinney Hill. It is interesting to note...that one of the new shops is partly situated in the Thrybergh parish and partly in the Dalton parish, so that customers are unconsciously passing from Dalton into Thrybergh as they walk about the shop."
