That's brilliant - what a lot of detail - you have even included the butcher's meat hanging next door!

I now have 2 great colour versions so thank you Skippy  :)

You learn something every day. I had to look up what a rout seat was, it seems it is a light bench supplied for parties. :)

I was same Jennifer - had to look up Rout Seats when I first saw the photo. I guess he was in an ideal spot being opposite Clapham Common  :)

Does anyone know what the circular containers (?) are that look like clock faces on the middle shelf window display under the Pot of Tea sign  ???

I wondered about those too but couldn't decide...they have to be some sort of boxed confectionery...I'm going for Turkish Delight...my favourite  ;D
