Tag Archives: The Redruth Drapery Stores
I noticed some windows in Redruth for the first time today and loved the fact that ‘DRESSES’ and ‘MANTLES’ are still etched into the glass. I’m hoping a local reader will know what the shop was in its heyday.
The West End Drapery Stores were quite something and the premises are still lovely on the outside. One section of the old shop is being renovated and has been recently painted and the floor tiles cleaned up.
1 I love the way hydrangea flowers fade so prettily.
2 The Redruth Drapery Stores was the place to be in the past! People from all around came to get their suits, their best outfits and their hats. The beautiful frontage is still here but the store no longer.
3 Walking past the coal store this afternoon on my way back from buying tickets to see ‘The Old Tyre Swingers’, this brand- new JCB caught my eye. The contrast of its pristine newness contrasted so much with the grime of where it was working.
