Corner Shop

By Franko59
This is a little bit of nostalgia, for me at least. As a lad growing up in the industrial part of Sheffield in the 60`s this was quite a familiar sight the "The corner shop" they sold just about everything you needed from carbolic soap to lucky bags! Most of the shop keepers were quit willing to allow credit until the end of the week and many items were sold loose such as tea and sugar,there were no supermarkets as such and these outlets were a lifeline in the communities and often a meeting point for the neighbourhood women to catch up on the local gossip. This was taken at the Ryedale folk museum in Hutton le Hole and I think they have done a great job to re-create the atmosphere!

Yes, you made an excellent and well composed record of a very worthy and interesting place and time. We have a similar shop on the Fraser River at Port Kells, [I think], here in British Columbia. Maybe someone nearby will bring that one up for us to see. Your composition is super here. Very pleasing!! TG
