Tonight | Back in Time for the Corner Shop on ABC – The Ferrone family are put to the test as they live through the highs and lows of running a corner shop through one of the most tumultuous periods of Australian history.

With World War 1 behind them, Australians can start to enjoy themselves again, as they make the most of the roaring twenties.

The Ferrones experience ANZAC Day for the first time, promote Australian made products and enjoy some much-needed family time at the park with their first take-out meal in 70 years.

But the good times come crashing down along with Wall Street, and hard times cast a familiar shadow over the thirties. After finding solace in sport, and converting their corner shop into a milk bar, the Second World War puts the brakes on any further recovery, as the Ferrones face their final struggle of the last three decades, rationing, and liquid stockings!

Guests to the store include actor and director Lex Marinos, who grew up in a milk bar in Wagga Wagga and tells the story of the proliferation of milk bars across Australia, introduced and run by Greek migrants. Annabel Crabb joins the Ferrones as they celebrate the 1947 royal wedding, which at the time was a welcome distraction from the war’s grim aftermath.
