Groceries from A J Chennels, Hemel Hempstead.

In April I gave details of a receipted invoice covering groceries supplied by W. J Cartwright to Benjamin Briggs, both of Hemel Hempstead. I have now updated the original page with another invoice, this time for groceries supplied to Mr Briggs by Adam Joseph Chennells, of Hemel Hempstead, in 1893, when  a pound of fresh bitter cost 1 shilling and 7 pence (or just under 10p of today's money).
