    Written to accompany BBC TV's living history experiment Turn Back Time, and illustrated with both vintage and modern photographs, this book charts the development of shops and high street shopping over the last 140 years, and describes the experiences of the seven shopkeepers who took up the programme's challenge of spending six weeks running shops exactly as they would have during six different periods - from making sausages in the 1890s to selling 12-inch vinyl singles in 1977.
