A Window Display

A display advertising Skipper – tinned fish products – a part of one of Race’s regular changing window displays. William Race’s shop was listed in Kelly’s Directory in 1913 as ‘Confectioners and Pastry Cooks’; William gave his trade as Grocer and Baker in the Census of 1891. Can you remember Skippers Sardines?
