nce upon a time, in a Greystones far, far away, there wasn’t a coffee shop to be found in this town.
What the Ferns…!?!
Hard to believe, I know. And some of you may need to fetch the smelling salts as you begin to fathom such a shocking, caffeine-free state of affairs.
Yep, there was a time when Greystones belonged to the grocers. And the butchers. And country attire emporiums that didn’t cost you an arm and a wellington.
Here are just a selection of the old shops that used to keep Greystonians in the height of fashion and up to their necks in spuds. If anyone out there knows the history of the likes of Edwards & Company above, or Hendy’s, or the Fallon shops, please let us know in the comments section below.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, that’s Ali Evan’s Hardware and Moran’s Fish Shop to the right, taken in the 1960s.
Just a little time warp parade. Ditto below, of course.
It’s important to have know the actual facts to throw in when you’re boring the arse off people over a frappucerinaramarama.
