Looks like a very nice little shop!
Bill Phillips: It has been in the town for many years E.

You are quite correct Sir William that this is a shop...another shop even. I understand that this is a butcher's shop in Droitwich in between the showers. They staff of this shop have been very tidy and put away their meat somewhere cool so that it can be re displayed on Mondag morgen.ni also note the British flag that let's the shopper know that he only sells British produce and no foreign muck.
Bill Phillips: You have clearly spent time to study this photograph closely Ridge

I think there might be a subliminal message here, in as much as the butcher is not selling meat at all but only displaying photographs of his produce. In other words he is suggesting you forsake the pleasures of the flesh, repent and diet
Bill Phillips: I think the message may be "it is Sunday afternoon so clear off and eat the meat I sold you yesterday"

Good to know you have a good butcher, Bill & Ange
Bill Phillips: There are several Lisl. Sadly I confess to buying most of my meat in Morrisons...who do very good meat!

Oh, this seems to be a fine butcher on working days - in our country the butcher shops appear to die out - many people have become veggies, I m yself am eating less meat, and now we have a new meat scandal in Germany! Terrible!
Bill Phillips: Our Helen has been a veggie since she was about 12. We have cut down a bit on meat and I know Ksthryn has too.

Lots of tempting items on display here. I wonder if any animals from Happy Pets opposite end up here?
Bill Phillips: The occasional rabbit perhaps? No I think not!

They put posters in windows when the shop has gone to the wall. Is this a variation of that notion.
No of course it isn't.
Bill Phillips: This is a long standing butcher's shop comrade
That cow is a very serious cow, Bill
Bill Phillips: Not a lot for him to laugh about in a butcher's shop JC
A real, old fashioned butchers shop. A rare sight these days, Bill.
Bill Phillips: We have a few Pauline
Locally grown English tomatoes? Wouldn't they have to be? there is a subliminal message about happy pets in the butchers window too,Bill
Bill Phillips: They could have come from Gateshead and that ain't local. I confess the Happy pets thing hadn't occurred to me grin

I see the backward words for Happy Pets. I don't think pets would be very happy in that shop.
Bill Phillips: Depends which side of the counter they were on
Good to see they are still in business Bill.
Bill Phillips: I think this shop does pretty well as it is long established with a good reputation
Is this the sausage maker, too?
Bill Phillips: I believe they make sausages Martin
We still have a butcher who produces lots of lovely stuff, including pies and other such things I shouldn't eat. Trouble is he spends so much time gossiping to every customer, he's a very friendly guy, it takes forever to get served!
Bill Phillips: I bet the customers love it Brian!
There are not many butcher shops around here Bill! Very nice capture.
Bill Phillips: We are well served her Richard
Beef tomatoes I take it smile
Bill Phillips: Naturally wink
Droitwich? How is that possible? Where's the rain?????
Bill Phillips: We had that yesterday....wall to wall sunshine again today

The avatar of the proprietor looks rather like the animals he spends so much time killing and dis-membering, Bill.
