Crabbed age and youth, everything but treacle, limestone paving

In the supermarket, a very old, small and frail lady is provided with help by a strapping girl twice her size who adjusts her pace courtiously to that of the customer.

An old shop sign in the pub reads: " D B Hanson, Camden Road, Tunbridge Wells. Prams, Mangles and everything but Treacle. Easy terms. From 2 Shillings per week.

Some honey coloured limestone paving arrives to replace the ugly cement slabs which we have put up with for too long on the path to the front door.
