  1. Another wonderful pc illustrating what a marvellous experience shopping must have been back in the day. Wishing you a very merry Christmas Howard, and thanks for sharing your wonderful collection, I enjoy visiting your blog very much.

  2. I heartily agree with Lisa. I love the contrast between then and now. Thanks so much for all of your posts.

  3. A charming street scene, Howard, then and even now, though a bit tawdry. Is that the WHSmith logo on the next shop down?

    I wish you a happy Christmas and a bright New Year.
