Trewins bill 1959

By Judy Faraday

Long before electronic tills became common Trewins relied on the hand written receipt to show that customers had paid for their goods.

This receipt was one of several handed in by a customer who was obviously very keen at DIY.  This bill, for paint, is dated April 1959, a long time before the TV programme 'Changing Rooms'; but there are five other similar bills in the archive so this Watford house must have benefited from a real 1950s make over!
