Bygone Days Living History series looks at shopping habits of yesteryear
The latest in a series of talks looking at the history of the local area will investigate shopping habits of yesteryear.
The next in the Bygone Days Living History series of talks will take place at Radstock Working Men's Club on Tuesday, October 1 at 7.30pm when Village Shops and Markets will be the topic.
Nick Turner, from Radstock Museum, said: "This new venture was started last year at Radstock Museum and is all about the recent past in local villages when people had time to talk and share their experiences of everyday life.
"After each talk, we encourage everyone to join in the open forum session and share your own thoughts and memories of the topic.

"We will be looking at how people did their shopping in the days before supermarkets and remembering where Mum got the food and other household items and Dad bought his baccy and gardening tools.
"Most important of all are your childhood memories of shopping – running errands for people and deciding how to spend your pocket money pennies on sweets and comics.
There will also be talks taking place in November, February and March.
