Glamorgan Archives: Shopping in the Past

Learn about how the way we shop has changed over time. Explore the changing face of the local high street and Cardiff city centre, and discover more about the development of home delivery. Find out about food rationing during difficult times, and learn about the treats on offer at cafes in the past.

This resource was created by the Glamorgan Archives using sources including photographs, trade directories, building plans, census returns and much more. The teachers’ notes were written for Key Stage 2, however the resource contains fascinating source material and ideas that could be adapted for KS3 and KS4 learners.
