I wrote this post a couple of weeks ago, but it has disappeared for some unknown reason. So here it is again.
It is that time of year again: Christmas at Shearer’s, the family grocer (and more) in Kirkwall. Here are a selection of shots from this year’s display. This time when I was there with my camera the cat was downstairs not by the fire, but I have included him as he is an integral part of the shop.
Remember to look at the top of the pictures, On many of them you can see the old tilly lamps and hurricane lamps they used to sell, along with old biscuit tins and other bits from the last century.
