Felton's Ironmongers

By TrevBatWCC    
Back in the main town centre of Ramsey, passed by here, Felton's Ironmonger’s shop. The façade and architecture made me feel like it was part of an open living museum, as you would find in such as Beamish. Thought it worthy of a shot - upload…and I’m getting to the bottom of the barrel-scraping stage now for holiday images… 🥺

My goodness, my late hubby would have enjoyed a look around there Trev.
Looks enormous - must be a lot of DIY folks in IOM.

Definitely a touch of the Beamishes about that, Trev, absolutely. I recall a shop front like that. with doors recessed between windows in Matlock when we were there last year.

How lovely. I remember when there were two similar shops in the area where I lived when I was a youngster. They were filled with all sorts of interesting things, and I can still remember the smell of pink paraffin and esso blue.

Please tell me they sold fork handles ... or four candles ... and the rest! Marvellous!
Lovely image Trevor! 😀 👍

I love an old-fashioned ironmonger's at any time, but this architecture is a treat.
