Eat an English Apple

If you say so.
I mean, why the heckfire not?
...or a pear.
This sign actually says E. Price & Sons, English & Foreign Fruiterers although this shot makes me read English Forever. I have a friend who apparently can't help reading the address number out loud too (when reading out loud in his own brain), ie 98 E. Price & Sons, English & Foreign Fruiterers 98 (there's another 98 on the other side... not that you're still reading. Snore.)
OK, let's think about this. The well-worn and weathered 'Est. over 60 years' awning was manufactured when exactly? 15 years ago? 30? So that grubby (yet lovely) old lady and old man have been selling fruit and vege for HOW LONG?! Do they still accept ration stamps? I wouldn't be surprised.
Selling homegrown British crops well before it was trendy. If it's non-exotic, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, apples and/or pears you're after, look no further than this gem of a joint on Golborne Road.
