Independent housewares store Lawsons of Plymouth is celebrating 110 years of trading in the city this year.
Frances Thomas Butterfield Lawson opened the first Lawsons shop in Frankfurt Street, Plymouth, in 1904 and began selling tools to the dockyard.
The shop was bombed in 1941 during the Blitz, but within two months the family had sprung back by opening for business in Compton Street.
However, tragedy struck again and this shop was bombed.
When Plymouth city centre was rebuilt after the war in 1952, Lawsons relocated again onto George Street, where the shop remained for another 50 years.
During this time the shop expanded to sell toys, kitchenware and cake decorating products.
In 2003 the shop moved to Cornwall Street, where it now stands.
Today the Lawsons' portfolio consists of another three shops in the south west. Totnes opened in 1979, Tavistock in 1992 and Ivybridge in 2006.
To mark the 110th anniversary the four stores were ceremoniously reopened by Lord Mayor of Plymouth Vivien Pengelly.
The current managing director, Liz Lawson, is the great granddaughter of the founder of Lawsons.
She said: "We have so many events for our customers to look forward to across the year.
"Lawsons are grateful to all our customers who continue to support us and I thank the staff who make Lawsons what it is today."
