Faldu's Shop, Valletta
Faldu's Shop, Valletta
This shop is found in one of Valletta's numerous parallel and narrow streets. The towing signs (which have been introduced in the last 10 years or so) may indicate that the shop could still be in use. The dictionary definition for "faldu" (masc.) refers to "someone who hawks clothes carrying them about on his shoulder for sale" -- probably something the owner did before before settling in his shop. "Falda" (femm.) can also be "a think flank (ventral part of loin and back part of breast" or "a piece of veal". Although the word is still commonly used by the middle-aged when buying meat while at the butcher's, it is more widely known as the Maltese word for labia. So maybe now you may understand why this would make the locals chuckle :)
Probably Uncirculated 1794 Conder Token, from James Conder's Drapery Shoppe in Ipswich, in Suffolk UK
Probably Uncirculated 1794 Conder Token, from James Conder's Drapery Shoppe in Ipswich, in Suffolk UK
James Conder was the first to catalog the late 18th Century British Provincial coinage. Today, such unofficial tokens are called 'Conder Tokens.' Genuine small change was not being produced by the government, per King George III, and leave was granted for privately struck tokens to circulate. It was the height of the Industrial Revolution, and they had suddenly developed the steam engine and the steam coin press, had built the first iron bridge, and an iron ship, apparently a sailing barge. People were moving from barter to use of currency, and it was badly needed. This token advertised Mr. Conder's drapery shop, and he was an avid coin collector. This is a very gratifying find, found on ebay, and which arrived recently.
