Humphrey Brothers shop in the Black Country Living Museum, Dudley
The museum website states that this builders' merchants business can be traced back to 1921, when brothers Joseph and William Humphrey first traded at 12 Birmingham Street, Oldbury. By the early 1930s the business had grown to include number 14 and eventually, by the late 1940s, the brothers were using number 16 as well.

The shop here looks as it might have done in the late 1930s, when it was selling fireplaces, grates, WCs, sinks, paints, varnishes and wallpapers. Inside, you can see a showroom which gives a snapshot of typical 1930s styles.
