Down At The Co-op

By Big_Beavis  
Many thanks for the comments on yesterday's upload. My last recollections of horse drawn vehicles is around the mid 50's, there was one chap who took fruit and vegetables around with a horse drawn trailer and there were still several local farmers who delivered milk from a milk churn carried round by horse and cart.
This is a scene from a local coop, I have no idea of the date. (The two drawers on the left of the man's shoulder are labelled Pills and Barley).

I remember when shops looked a bit like this: once again this image brings back memories from way back.

The lady's dress appears to be Edwardian so probaby early 1900's is my guess.
