What’s In Store?

1811F-14w.jpg

This is a scan of a quarter-plate glass negative which must date from the end of the nineteenth or early twentieth century. The seven featured subjects are an interesting collection: they could be the staff of a draper’s shop or a saloon bar. There is something vaguely H G Wells about them – that might be a young Mr Polly at the back on the left … or an old Mr Polly in the front centre. As with any good novel, the question we must ask when we first meet the main characters is – “what’s in store for them?”
