Grocers (1 o 2)


Shopping for groceries in the late 1800s, and until the 1950s, was a hands-off experience for the shopper. They brought their list to the well-dressed grocer, who gathered it all. Products such as flour and sugar were weighed and measured out into brown-paper bags. This shop was in Nelson or Marlborough.
