No Barcodes Used Here


Another shot from the Brewhouse Museum. This is what the Victorian version of a supermarket looked like. Only everything was behind the counter and you got the assistant to weigh, count and bag your purchases, whilst chatting away about the weather, apologising not having certain items and the ongoing scandal involving Mrs Gray and the chimney sweep.

I've tweaked the photo to give it that authentic sepia look which a lot of photographs had then, due to the size of the camera, glass plates and the developing chemicals. So much easier now, but are the images as interesting?
