A Victorian Shop: Joslin and Quicke

This engraved view appears on the business card of Joslin and Quicke’s hosiery business in Queen Street, Exeter, which stood opposite Little Queen Street. The site now forms part of Marks and Spencer’s. On the ground floor the shop displays the large plate glass windows which came into general use in Victoria’s reign. The upper floors offered accommodation for family and sometimes merchants.
