The Old Curiosity Shop
Not my favourite Dickens’s novel; I felt like strangling the Grandfather throughout the book. However it does include one of the best descriptions of life in an industrial town written at the time.
Postcards of the shop are quite common, but this one is slightly different. Can you see the policeman standing to the left of the shop?
The shop is probably one of the oldest shops in Central London. It was made from wood from old ships and survived the Great Fire of London in 1666.
