Sweet Jars

I found this small corner shop in the rural Hampshire town of Bishops Waltham: old Hampshire that is, not the New Hampshire masquerading on the north eastern corner of the United States. It bought back so many memories for me of when I was a child, and of walking to the corner store where Dolly would serve me with a white paper bag with my choice of sweets from a jar, all for a penny (yes, I am old). It is good to know that some things do not change, although there were the prepackaged confectioneries also available of course.

Rows of sweet jars on the shelves of Sweet Corner in the small Hampshire town of  Bishops Waltham invoke memories of childhood in a world of prepacked heavily marketed alternatives.

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
