The tour starts at the Corner Shop which in itself is fascinating. It has been recreated from oral history and the curators created, successfully I think, what a typical Corner Shop must have been like. It is here where we met our guide who introduced us to the four homes that have been preserved.
In each modest home I felt like a guest. We were invited to sit on the settee normally in the parlour, perused photographs, shown around the home including the toilet and laundry outside.
Stories of each family were shared and pictures in my mind became vivid and real.
