High Street, Colchester, Essex, on a rainy day in 1958. The Sainsbury's store in the picture was large for it's time, but very small by today's standards. Shoppers queued at different counters for personal service for each required item (cut bacon, cheese, butter, etc). Sainsbury's town store is now a supermarket, and their main store for the area is an out of town hypermarket selling everything.
