The Real Shop
The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-1841) was one of British author Charles Dickens' most popular novels. Inspired in part by the real-life store shown in this c. 1900 photo, the novel relates the tragic story of Nell Trent, a kindly young girl who is tasked with protecting her ill grandfather from a nefarious set of villains who believe the pair are hiding a secret inheritance.
