What Price Today? Shopman: A loaf is three halfpence more today, boy!


A fat shopkeeper stands behind a counter next to baskets piled high with bread, with shelves loaded with foreign produce behind him. A small thin boy in tattered clothes stands in front of the counter, trying to buy bread.

A General Election poster for 1906, the text struck through, can be seen in the foreground. Banner top and bottom.
