A Yorkshire Weekend - Haworth 2/6

One of the most popular shops in Haworth is this one.

As you can see there is a great range of old fashioned sweets in the window and even  more inside.

Once again it took a while to get a shot without people wandering across the picture.

Its a good one, Brian. Really like the big paving stones and the hardy weeds.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, and those paving stones have been trodden on by thousands of people over the years I suspect.
nice shot, patience prevailed!!
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob.

Yum, my sort of shop smile
Brian Walbey: And mine Tony, thanks for the comment.
I love the sign on the window about the sweets being off ration!
Brian Walbey: I suppose that would date back to the war years and just after in reality Bill, well noticed because I didn't.
A lovely reminder of how things used to be when we were children. Agonising over whether to spend our pocket money on a quarter pound of dolly mixtures or some sherbet dabs, or some of both.
Brian Walbey: My choice would treacle toffees Sheila, I know they are still made but do you remember the toffee that used to come in bars.
I love these old windows Brian. I would walk in straight away!
Fine capture.
Brian Walbey: There's too many of us on here today with a sweet tooth Richard, me included.

That's the trouble if you're in a tourist trap like Haworth - can't get away from the people! What a wonderful shop - I wonder if they sold Lucky Dips? Does anyone else remember those?
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: I let Maureen go in to do the buying Ingrid, I would have purchased a bag of everything I think.
Brilliant. The G10 is very strong on its colours is'nt it, very rich and vibrant. I'd never have got this shot personally, hard as hell trying to keep the camera still while your cheeks are full of black jacks & fruit salads.. smile
Brian Walbey: Oh fruit salads, one of my favourites Dave. the g10 does seem to be good on colour quality.

Wonderful memories
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed vintage.
What a wonderful shop. My Gran would have loved this. She did enjoy certain boiled sweets...Now off ration!..how long has it been there? A fine shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: I suspect this has been there a while Ron, such a lovely lot of old fashioned choice though.
Is that a kitty in the window? - bottom right.
Brian Walbey: Yes that is a kitty in the window Mary, I should have guessed you'd have spotted that.

Ah.. sweets in jars! A place where you can get just the weight you want without it falling foul of some EU weight regulation nonsense. No wonder it was poular. "A qaurter pound of sherbert lemons, please."
Brian Walbey: Ah sherbert lemons, just let it dissolve slowly on the tongue, what memories.
Sounds like a shop out of Dylan Thomas's ''Under Milk Wood''

richard
Brian Walbey: This one has been renamed Richard, "Under Milk Chocolate."
I would love to go in this little quaint shop, and buy some sherbet lemons, and pineapple cubes!
Brian Walbey: Alan wants the sherbert lemons Linda, hope there's enough to go round for the two of you smile
Creamy toffee in bars, and a little hammer to crack it with, putting the broken slivers into your mouth and letting it soften into chewy sweetness. But I never liked treacle toffee, only treacle tart!
Brian Walbey: That sounds very appetising Sheila, oh what memories, and as for treacle tart, yes please, with lashings of custard smile

Oooh, I'm not surprised this shop is popular. It looks delightful
Brian Walbey: I daren't go in Ellie, I left that to Maureen, there was so much lovely stuff in the window let alone inside.
