Sweetshop

A tale of Sweets past in the Window of Matthew Tomlinsons grocers shop at Lark Hill Place, Salford Museum & Art Gallery, by Peel Park.

Over the passing of time

Lads and lasses tastes change.

Damson Drops and Mint Humbugs go

Sideways for Cola Cubes and sherbet dips

When you cross the cobbles of the Victorian age

Every Mum and Dad smiles as they are reminded of

Each little treat – They were introduced to by their Mum and Dad

Tales of when a shilling would get you a host of delights

Smiling away at the delicious tastes in glass jars
