You want it ? - we sell it.

A bit of Ye' Olde' World' photo treatment to a long established store,..local to us,. is 'French's the Ironmongers' in the North Derbyshire town of 'Eckington' - under the same family ownership for many generations..and selling a countless number of items including your required gallons / litres of paraffin via a tap from a tank.
The gap to the left is known as 'Pilkingtons' yard' which along with other 'yards' is named from early Eckington families..

"Proper" ironmongers seem to be a dying breed David. The last shop we had like this in our town closed quite a few years ago now..........and is greatly missed. I like the fact I could go there and buy just a couple of screws.........instead of having to buy a multipack of 12. Proper customer service, local knowledge and good advice given freely.

I hope your one stays there for many years yet!

A beautiful capture............with superb detail. The processing is perfect..!!

A smashing bit of history here although recorded just days ago. Yes, these shops are getting less and less and so will be just history soon. I like your treatment in sepia too.

Best Wishes. Herb
