Eric Shaw

This grocery book belonged to my grandparents, Albert Shaw of Ballymahon, Co. Longford, 1883 – 1928 and Ethel Perry Shaw of Abbeyview, Clarecastle, Co. Clare, 1887 – 1973.

They were married in Clarecastle Church on 10 July 1906, By 1919, when they lived in Baltinglass, they had three children – Brendan (1912, Reginald (1914) and Evelyn (1919). Brendan was my father.

The grocery book records the family’s purchases from Herbert Webb Ltd., Wholesale & Retail Grocers, Baltinglass, providing insights into products and prices at the time.
