However I managed to find a few.
|Stocks Hill, Ketton|
If you look closely you will see a flower shop. Ketton is the Rutland village in which I was born in a house less than 100 yards away from this shop. Then it was a grocer's run by Mr Hall. It was here during WWII that I bought a gobstopper a day with pennies left for me by my brother Arthur when he went off to war.
I've mentioned several times before that I worked in Norway for a number of years. So I can add some 'shopping' pictures from Stavanger.
|Stavanger - Torget - SS Norway visit|
Torget means the square and this is the place where the market is held and just the place to go for fish. Away from the square there are busy shopping streets like the one below and whose name escapes me now.

I also caught Torget at a busy time.

Now I live in a village in North Yorkshire a few miles outside Yarm where the High Street was once voted the Best in Britain.
|Yarm - Georgian High Street|
