My HOUSE used to be a PUB: How to save the UK high street

Blofeld's Cat


"The only reason for keeping the High street I spotted in the article was nostalgia."

Ah yes, I remember well the small shops that once made up our local High Street...

[wavy lines] There was the baker's shop; with his three cats sunning themselves in the window, their noses resting wetly on the loaves ... The butcher's shop; with the flies sitting peacefully on the dismembered carcases hanging outside the window ... the sweet shop; whose owners had a pathological hatred of children ... the 'convenience' store; with its captive audience pricing, and which closed at 4 pm ... All gone now...

"As far as I'm concerned the high street [...] cant die off soon enough."

Indeed. (+1)
