The Victorian middle classes used a great deal of paper. They wrote frequent letters or notes to neighbours, and received postal deliveries several times a day.They also frequently commissioned printing: for calling cards, and for announcements of births, marriages and deaths in their large families, with black-bordered paper or card for mourning.
A stationer was among the very first shops to open in the street.

Food in restaurants was not rationed during the war and because only richer people ever ate out, this was said to favour them.In 1942 the government responded by limiting the price of meals to five shillings, with only one main course allowed per person.
Bread counted as a course.
