Re: Let’s Go Shopping!

It’s slowing us all down! It looks like …………… a perambulator! Read all about it in the Dundee Courier, Monday, Septembe...

Re: Let’s Go Shopping!

Last week, while looking for articles about shopping, I stumbled upon an interesting series of testimonials by Scots, in the 1890s, in support of that remarkable cure, Dr Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People. That’s the one that was effective in the treatment of paralysis, influenza, rheumatism, ana...

Re: Let’s Go Shopping!

Thanks everyone, This week’s story is from the Evening Telegraph, Dundee, Friday, November 22, 1878, and is about how the poor did their shopping.

In this article from the Dundee Courier, Tuesday, June 25, 1844, the Lady of the House went out shopping with Susan and the baby. But, what was the Man of the House doing looking in his wife’s diary, and even w...
