Museum of Shops – Eastbourne

Recently my wife and I visited an exciting exhibition in Eastbourne.
It is stacked high with many artifacts, and objects from the past.

I have uploaded the pictures, taken with my professional camera and not my mobile phone. You will see old radios, needle boxes from old record players, tins of biscuits as sold in my childhood, and many items before I was born.

I recommend that you pay this museum a visit very soon!
