A view of Blisland around the turn of last century, when Churchtown cottage was also a village store.

The grocer’s wife stands in front of her home where the front room on the left is being used as a shop.

The signs on the wall are advertising ‘Home and Colonial Teas’, ‘The Illustrated Weekly News’ and the services of ‘Mortimers’, a laundry and garment dying business from Plymouth.

In addition to the clay or cast iron flue pipe on the right of the coach house, there is an ornate cross mounted in a prominent position.

Can our readers shed any light on the matter?
