Beamish - Part II - Let's Shop!!!
So, off we tread down the high street in Beamish Town 1918 ish. Firstly, let's pop into the hardware shop. You can't hear her (or see her particularly well as these are phone pics -sorry) - but the shop assistant is asking us if we would like our knives sharpened? Reminding us that stainless steel has not yet been invented and a regularly visit to the knife sharpener is highly advisable. Thanks Miss - but we're off to the more popular and crowded......Sweet Shop! It's complete mayhem in here - let's pop across the road to the Grocers! Now off we go, briefly, as my eyes are watering from excitement (blurry pics sorry - grrrrr) - to the Haberdashery..... I need to pop into the Printers & Stationers to buy a few bit & bobs...... An Exercise Book....... A few little cards...... And ephemera of all sorts.... But my favourite.....A License to have my own male servant. Did you get one too - excellent! Tram home....back to my house for tea and scones.... you will see the inside of my Beamish Terrace House! That's Part III.
