Food and Goods

1933 ~ 1935

We have used the Rhiw, Rectory as an example of a shopping basket from the 1930's, there are several reasons for this, but mainly because the writing is clear, as some of the ledgers pages have faded, and most were scribbled out anyway after the account was settled. The Rectory shopping basket is typical of most of Rhiw's households, although much larger. But the same basic good were bought by most.

Because the ledger was too large for the scanner we had to photograph the pages. Most of the shop accounts are in English, but there are a few Welsh words, and this could be confusing, e.g. Bacco or Baco, is Tobacco, Bacwn is Bacon, Torth is a Loaf, Blawd is Flour, and Burum is Yeast.
