Trevor Fawcett mentions Mollands pastrycooks and confectioners at 2 Milsom Street and of long established Stall Street pastry cooks. (pp.76-77)
This is interesting...
Fawcett also comments for Georgians ' a printshop offered a rare scene of pictorial abundance. No wonder that Admiral Croft ( in Jane Austen's "Persuasion" ) could never pass a certain Bath printseller's without looking in the window'. Festooned with engravings and etchings, mezzotints and aquatints,...picturesque views and old master reproductions, printshop windows drew spectators like a magnet'. (p.87)
Fawcett says Georgian Bath was set apart with it's trade in luxury commodieties-silks, laced coats, confectioners' shops and fine jewellers which brought fashionable people to the city.
