The corner sweet shop, Leyland
The corner shop has long been a feature of many a city or suburban street. Are they as prevalent in England's south as here in the north? I can't remember. Anyway, today's shot was taken in a tiny sweet shop in Leyland, Lancashire.
It's a corner shop specialising in confectionery but has no name, signage nor obvious opening times; its window display showcases jars of fashioned sweets (and modern day cleaning products).
The shop is part of an end terrace house and I imagine the owner is only in there when customers enter- to buy a quarter of humbugs, gobstoppers, or as in the case of the friend I was with (Holly Marland the Kora Queen), the sweets known as rhubarb and custard.
