General Store Window

by Richovery

I bought this photograph from an antiques centre in Whitchurch, Shropshire. It measures 5 x 3.5 ” and is printed on Kodak paper but doesn’t have any information on the reverse relating to the subjects. As you can see the shadows in the image are very dark (I try not to adjust the images I find too much). I did try to read the sign above the door by changing the contrast in Photoshop but could only read the second of two words which was ‘Right’. The photograph itself contains a lot of information, the prices are before decimalisation (1971), the sign written window tells you that they have bananas (which can also be seen in the doorway), pineapple, a range of potatoes, grapes, eggs, oranges, fish and lettuce.
