The Corner Grocer

Introduction
This 1950s ceramic, the first in the Hazle 2000 series, sold out within a year in 1997. The corner shop below is not exactly the same but is open for business as an actual, 1950s sweet shop! Birmingham Conservation Trust restored this terrace by 2004 and it is now run by The National Trust as a Back to Backs Museum. Homes built back to back around yards were deemed unhealthy and mostly demolished by the early 1970s.

 We have found sourcing apt store images difficult, as Hazle did 21 years ago. The Victorian shop above on Tarry and Nansen Road is so altered it is hard to believe that Hazle partly referred to a dark, grainy monochrome photocopy of a 1950s version! The walls are rendered and one top window is now missing. The wrap-around frontage has gone and all openings are new. Just the doorsteps, flat corner and roof with dentil moulding continue!

 55-63 Hurst Street are seen left with Inge Street on the right. The five stores from the left are: a modern National Trust shop, a restoration display next door as taster for a guided tour, old wine and tailor shops and Candies corner shop. Houses off Inge Street recreate interiors set in the 1840s, 1870s, 1930s and the 1970s.

 1950s service included weighing items such as cheese.

 Great demand for old-style confectionery at Candies.
