Advert for Trewby Brothers, general & fancy drapers
Printer: Williams & Strahan
Medium: Print on paper
'General & Fancy' draper's stores, like the one featured in this advertisement, had to ensure that their different classes of customers did not meet. This was not as difficult as it sounds: it became usual practice for the gentry to shop in the morning, and have their purchases wrapped and delivered to their houses in the afternoon; the middle classes shopped in the afternoon; and the working classes visited in the evening after they had finished work.
