A Trip Down Memory Lane

Medicine bottles from the chemists shop

The words 'social history' are enough to send shivers through many a heart; suffice to say the museum brings a series of exclamations of 'Granny had one of those' from visitors as they spot flat irons, and hobbin' irons, and tins of iron jelliods.

If you can persuade Granny to accompany you, she will probably tell you, as you visit the fish and chip shop, dairy, ironmongers, cobblers, pharmacy and toy shop, where she bought all these wonderful items, and how much they cost, and why nobody ever threw anything away.

The museum might even find a cabinet large enough to put Granny on permanent display and relieve you of the obligation to look after her in her old age.
