Young Victoria in Abingdon

There is a Young Victoria display in Smiths the Chemist, promoting perfume. The film opens in Oxford tomorrow.

I would imagine that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, on their honeymoon, may well have sent an equerry to pick up some soaps and perfumes from the Smiths of their day...

And perhaps needlework material from the Masons of their day.
