Victorian butchers shops opened right onto the street so that customers could see that quality of the meat for themselves. The walls and doors were often ornately decorated with images of pigs, cows and sheep painted on beautiful tiles and the owners name would have been painted in bold letters on a sign above the shop. The meat was arranged on trays with small signs indicating the price of each cut. Many other items, especially dairy products like milk, cheese or cream, could also be purchased from the butchers shop.
