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.
