286 Storefronts

This is a tiny store which sells sweets as they used to be sold. From the bottle, weighed in front of you and in a PAPER bag.

Those were the days, sigh, I used to spend my pocket money (all 6d) on Liquorice comfits, penny chews and sometimes sherbet bombs all in the same paper bag.

Still remember taking the ration book to the shop with the 6d, without the coupon, no sweets.

Long time ago though 1950’s.

    We call them Lollies Howard, but at the age of 7 6d was enough to get me into the cinema and buy a sjerbet and a cordial drink. Normally a Hopalong Cassidy or Audie Murphy Movie!

    Love the candy striped awning over the shopfront – I had a laugh about your reminiscences, even now the kids can buy lollies in a paper bag.
