Followers of KT Miniatures Customer Gallery will have already seen the wonderful 1940s Co-operative with living quarters above, made by Linda Holmes from Dorset (UK) quite some time ago now. Her mum worked in the Hull Co-operative before and after the war, so was the inspiration behind this creation.
Linda has emailed me a wonderful updated photograph of her wartime living room above the shop with some new additions. I think you will agree that this is exquisite.
Linda tells us...."The Lady leaving the room has a shorter skirt (rationing you know) and now has drawn on stocking seams (no silk stockings from a friendly yank for her), she has a small belt on the back of her jacket which makes it look a bit more dressy (she thinks). She has now remembered to take her gas mask with her too."
