My folks recently were going through some family photos, and we came across this one – a shot from the 1940s, back in England, of my Grandfathers old greengrocers (do Americans call them Farm shops?). Unfortunately stores like this are hard to come by these days back in England – the large chain supermarkets have undercut all of the smaller, local stores, so most are out of business. Thankfully farmers markets are still around and going strong! Anyhow, I thought people might get a giggle out of this shot of an old veg store. I can only imagine how much produce was inside, there is a storefull on the outside!
