Pamela Horn tells the story of the people who worked in the retail trade from the beginning of the 18th century to the 1960s, a period which saw growing urbanization and more and more people dependent on shops. Using diaries and memoirs, the study investigates working life in corner shops, 'high class' grocers, co-operative stores, drapers' shops and department stores, offering a lively insight into social change and working conditions, and into our changing relationship with shops and shopping.
