One hundred years of shopping in Reading

An Online Talk by Ann Smith

Jacksons, Langstons and Tuttys are familiar shop names to people in Reading. But do you remember Hawkes Ironmongers or Cook’s Dairy and Farm Equipment? 

This online talk will take us on a virtual walk round the town centre and look at shops from the 19th century to the present day, and how shopping has changed over the years. Some of these shops were unique to Reading, others house-hold names. 

This talk is the second of three in the Summer Potpourri online talks series. Book all three talks in the series for £12.50 (members £10).   

Pre-booking is required, because the event link will be sent in advance.       

2 - 3.15pm
