Who's Online

Do you remember some of the shops that used to be in your village, town or city that have sadly gone or been swallowed up into a corporate image? Your local builder, newsagent and corner shop had painted signs on their premises advertising their wares. Many metal plates were affixed to walls advertising products sold in the premises. There are many examples still to be found around the country and this section of my web site logs them before they disappear forever.

The availablity of cheap digital cameras is a boon to a historical collector and it is now easy (and inexpensive) to grab a shot of almost anything without ceremony.  If you notice anything of even passing interest, please take a picture and send it.  If it isn't appropriate there's no harm done but the chances are that it will become part of a historical collection that is here to be shared by everyone.
