TitleThe Shop Front of Pirkis & Son, Huntingdon
DescriptionKelly's 1910 trade directory lists Pirkis & Son, oil & colour men, oil merchants and general hardware merchants and china and glass warehouse at 122 High Street, Huntingdon. Presumably the man standing in the shop doorway is Mr Pirkis himself. He seems to sell everything from dog food to distemper, brushes to baskets, china and glass, bellows to buckets, and a good selection of oil lamps can be seen in the window display.
