This photograph of a greengrocer's
shop in the early1900s is courtesy of Viv Nunn. It shows Eustances of
176 Tollington Park in Finsbury Park, about five miles from Edmonton.
All greengrocers shops of the time were probably very similar.
Note the wealth of detail, eg.
the flat part of the delivery cart for the scales; the price of potatoes
- 12 pounds for a shilling; the baby prams; the toy prams, etc
