Advert For A. Lewis, Grocer
Medium: Print on paper
Grocer’s stores in the 19th century were full of every conceivable edible item that a consumer could possibly want. There was tea, coffee, dairy products, fruit and vegetables, dried goods, bottled sauces and drinks, as well as a number of useful household items such as candles, string, matches and paint. Customers would remain loyal to particular stores in the 19th century and a grocer would have known all his customers by name. If there was anything that a customer required that he did not stock he would order it in specially.
