Lake District Gingerbread Shop

“Not the most interesting photograph” I hear you say. I would agree but it’s worthy of a place in our gallery because of the uniqueness of this shop in Grasmere. It is selling just one product …. gingerbread. The business was started in 1854 by Sarah Nelson to serve the ever-increasing number of well-healed tourists visiting the Lake District and the photograph probably dates from the 1880s. It is still going strong, in fact, the queues to enter this tiny shop can be very long indeed. I hope our small family business survives for one hundred and fifty years!
