Hazlewood & Dent Ironmongery & Tools
by Richard Overy
A photograph bought at a Antiques Fair in Oswestry.
No message on the reverse but the image itself tell us about the vendors.
The sign reads: H&D Hazlewood & Dent Ironmongery & Tools, Corner of Great Hamptons St & Vyse St, Birmingham Estb 1885.
The edges of the photograph are out of focus but it looks as though this is their stall, perhaps at a trade show or a fair.
I can spot a deckchair, brooms, lamps and a few other items.
Great Hampton & Vyse Street still exist this is where the Ironmongers stood in Birmingham, England.
