IOTW no.684

By June 28, 2023IOTW

This eBay-sourced snapshot initially gave little away. The OHC Morris Minor Coachbuilt Saloon seen passing behind the two elegantly dressed ladies could not be identified as its registration plate was out of shot. The canopies shading the shop windows provided a clue to help identify the location. The two left-hand canopies simply read Florist and Fruiterer respectively, while on the third and fourth canopies the words Gilbert & Hall Chemist can just be discerned. A little internet searching revealed that Gilbert & Hall were a Bournemouth-based chemist during the thirties, the location and the ladies’ attire, therefore, being unsurprising and congruous.
