The Way Things Were
This was taken in the Gwalia Supply Company Store about 1880.
That's to say it was taken in a reconstruction of the original store found in St. Fagan's National History Museum, just outside Cardiff.
This museum contains many reconstructed buildings, of all ages, taken from all over Wales and rebuilt as the originals, in the grounds of St Fagan's Castle.
It's a fascinating way to spend a day.
But I couldn't find the checkout and there was no-one behind the counter.
Also thanks to my friend nicolas_gent for the use (and abuse) of his texture.
