When we dismantled the chicken shop signage, this old painted signage fascia came to light...Does anyone remember 'Harry's'? What could be purchased from there? And when was this? As we built a new shopfront and fascia, I specifically requested for 'Harry's' to be preserved and not removed. It lies behind, dormant and intact...

Hi Nicolas

This might possibly be the Harry who was listed in the 1964 voting register. I think he'd been there since at least 1954. His middle name may have been 'Lewis' and he may have owned a second home elsewhere in London.

Nicholas,

Here's an image from the corner of Winthrop Street looking south. Can't quite see your place, but I thought it might be of interest.

Avvie,
Your 3rd photograph captioned "Old London, circa 1870, photographer unknown", is in fact a photograph of Glasgow.
The photograph was taken by a famous Glasgow photographer Thomas Annan.

Hello, I'm a newcomer and have enjoyed reading the threads on this forum immensely and finally joined up. Here's a photo of Father Christmas trying to break in to the corner shop on Crispin Street, Spitalfields in 2013:
