      Any details on this one? Looks post war, either bomb damage or general dilapidation.

      The remains of the shop sign are still visible but I can't make it out.

            Hi Al,
            It looks like like the shop is STRONGWATER (at least that's what I could make out) which was a butchers based on a comment I found at this site -

            Such sad pictures. I grew up on the East End and my father was a Kosher butcher. He worked for Maxie Strongwater in Old Montague Street. He made the best Vienna’s and SaltBeef ever.

              Thanks Ven,

              Yes, definitely Strongwater. Thanks for that link, absolutely fascinating, great pictures. Really shows the effects of time and change. Interesting personal connection you've got there too.
