This is a brilliantly detailed and realistic picture of a typical Greengrocers in pre-decimalisation Britain. The old £.s.d. currency is apparent in the price signs, and the weighing scales are particularly evocative of the era, but so is the surprising lack of variety in the shop, which only stocks the relatively few fruit and vegetables eaten in Britain at that time.
