For nearly a century Woolworth’s bright red signboard was a beacon on British and Irish main streets. American in origin, Woolworth’s business model of inexpensive goods piled on counter tops nevertheless scored an immediate hit with British consumers. With its own architects’ department and regional construction teams, Woolworth’s erected hundreds of prominent stores in shopping centers throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Including a plethora of photographs from Woolworth’s archive, Woolworth’s: 100 Years on the High Street celebrates this American store that occupied the heart of so many UK communities.
