Here is Golding’s ironmongers in Bedford in 1906- now the longest surviving High Street business, still trading as a general ironmongers.     The window display at Golding’s remains the same in all essentials as  it did a century ago, though now there is a slightly-recessed 1950s shopfront, and a modern steel shutter, which descends when the shop is closed. #UK #history #localhistory

Whether for research or pleasure, local history, past and present, helps us learn more about where we came from and where we live now.
