Exhibit of the Week: Longster’s & Sons - thriving business was built from the ground up
The Woodhams Stone Collection contains many items made and sold by local shops and businesses. There are beer bottles, buttons and clocks to name a few, but some businesses do not produce the kind of goods that survive the years. One of these is the family firm of Longster’s, who made their living as gardeners, seedsmen and nurserymen. If their produce is still thriving and growing, chances are it would not fit or thrive in our stores. Luckily, we do have other material such as invoices and receipts and even paper bags and sacks from this very long-lived and successful business.
