Days of Douthwaite

Shopping becomes a major occupation at this time of year, so in the lead up to the Christmas we are going to look at some of the Rasen shops and suppliers of yesteryear.

And to start us off we have this advert from 1945 for H E Douthwaite of 17/19 Queen Street.

These days, you can get tattoos there rather than ‘titfers’.

Do you remember Douthwaite’s or other shops from the town’s past?
