Shopping in the old days (well, for the upper-crust). Not sure where or when this was made.

I found that picture at this site the 5th one down. https://www.indy100.com/article/11-vint ... in-7691446

The caption says:
"Women load their Christmas shopping into a car with the aid of an attendant from Whiteley's department store in London. 3 December 1930. (Picture: Fox Photos/Getty Images)"

Good sleuthing. I figured it might be the early 30's based on what I could see of the car. Must be nice to have an attendant. I didn't figure they'd been to Walmart from the looks of things. :D

This photo from the 1870s never fails to amuse me.
