Hugh and Elizabeth - Mono - Black & White
“Hugh and Elizabeth"
Black and White Version

There are very few old fashioned “proper” shops these days. Hugh is the second generation to run his family hardware shop, which his family took over in 1929. Here is pictured with his daughter looking through some of the old stock in the back of the shop Its a shop were computers haven't yet been invented, orders and sales are written in a ledger and you can still buy hardware measured in imperial not metric. To quote a fellow villager:

"We were down the back of the shop when we moved to the village looking for screws for a very old Singer sewing machine and I noticed that some of the boxes holding the screws and nails were marked in shillings and pence!"
