This recreated streetscape is like walking through a village a hundred years ago, with life size shop fronts on either side. These shops and services were typical of Riverstown or any other small Irish village. Some are actual shops that were in this village, and some are from other parts of Sligo. They all contain authentic objects of their time, both in the windows and above the display. In the days before cars and motorised transport, people didn’t travel as much or as far from home. The village and village shops were places to meet and exchange news, as well as do shopping. The Street shopfronts include Riverstown Creamery, JJ O’Gara Bicycle Store, Baker’s Butchers Shop, Sleator’s Shoe Shop, Conlon’s and Taheny’s Grocery Shops, The Riverbrook Inn, Bellew Brothers, the Post Office, McKim’s Drapery, Boyd’s Chemist, The Sligo Champion and the ESB. Also on display are an old telephone kiosk and on-street petrol pumps which were once commonplace.
