Those bellows could use a leather refresh, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Couldn't we all Ray?
I like your treatment, Bill - it somehow brings the place to life. I'd never heard that song before!
Bill Phillips: Not a Beatles original. It is a Goffin and King song

I see the bits of chain - but wonder if this is actually a place where chains were made?
Bill Phillips: It was originally a nail shop but as nail making declined a number of nail makers switched to making handmade chains. This particular shop finally closed in 1969!

Good leading lines and great play of light!
