It's very interesting, my great grandparents had a little shop in Grove Lane Smethwick, the family lived above. My mother helped make the ice-cream in the same way they did on the show but people brought a bowl for it.
I found the first episode really useful as we have been looking at a 'corner shop' in Boldmere which opened in the late 1800's so the date coincided. The Boldmere shop is now a pub and we have been trying to find out when it was licenced. The TV shop keeper had applied for a beer licence and served this in his grocer's shop so this may have happened in Boldmere. I'll have to watch the next episode on i-player as I missed it.
