(B&W/color photographs) "In this photographic essay, the authors have set out to record the tradition of the small English shop while it still survives. Up and down the country, theyhave photographed those shops that seem to sum up a particular aspect of this tradition, whether through design and decoration of the shop and its front, the signs which proclaim its trade, its display of wares in the window, or simply its friendly service, always reflective of the strong and idiosyncratic personality of the shopkeeper. Incuded here are the butcher, fishmonger, greengrocer, florist, dairy, baker, tobbaconist, bookseller, ironmonger, chandler, draper, milliner and others -- each of them part of a tradition which remains quintessentially English."
