I really do not know what the housewife of the 1920's would make of the performance we have nowadays to go shopping. She might like it, and. again, she might not. True, we now have the convenience of a car to go to the shops, but when we get there we have the inconvenience of finding somewhere to park it. We then find a 'trolley park' to obtain a sort of wire wheelbarrow which undoubtedly was designed to go backwards and forwards but which at times takes an impish mechanical delight in trying to go sideways, and also has been known to attack other shoppers or to form a close association with their trolleys. After a period spent walking up and down alleyways and searching shelves, during which time you may have located about half the things you wanted, you are then allowed to stand in line until a multi-keyed electronic device decides how much money it requires. No. I don't think Grandma would have been too happy about it. In her day she could leave a list at 'Bacon Slicer' Adcock's. Billy Kendall's, Durrants or any one of several other shops and on her return her order would be boxed up ready for collection or would be delivered free during the next morning.
