Synopsis

In 1960, there were no supermarkets, no out-of-town shopping centres and not even a hint of internet shopping. The British high street was full of made-to-measure tailors and traditional grocers. Timpson paints a compelling, personal and vivid picture of how shops have changed over the last 100 years.
