Sweet Piece by Swinton Queen Primary School

This piece of Artwork was created by local Rotherham Primary School Swinton Queen. The Art reflects the opposite shop - The Whistle Stop Sweet Shop that sits at the top of Rotherham High Street. This Shop is one of only Two Temperance Bars in the UK and the only One in Yorkshire. A Temperance Bar is a real bar but does not serve Alcohol. They were very popular in the late 19th century and served drinks such as Dandelion & Burdock, Cream Soda and Ginger Beer. Extra Fact - Temperance bars were the first outlet for the famous drink Vimto at the start of the 20th century. Back then it was known as Vim Tonic as it was was originally registered as a health tonic & medicine. Got you feeling thirsty?! You can always pop Across to The Whistle Stop Sweet Shop and grab a Hot Vim Tonic and say Hello to the owners whilst your there.
