Ralph Dodds & Son Ltd. – Grocers and Tea and Coffee Dealers

This short film tells the story of the firm of Ralph Dodds & Son Ltd.. Dodds was born in Norham in 1812 and had ambition from a young age, taking him to London, Lincoln and Newcastle. He returned to Berwick in the 1840s where he set up a successful tea and coffee business which was continued by three further generations of his family. Closing in the1950s, despite the heights to which it rose, the business has become somewhat of a forgotten name in the history of Berwick.
