Marks & Spencer - Stratford 1910
« on: 05 May, 2016, 09:22:17 PM »
I recently came across a picture of Marks & Spencer, Stratford in 1910. It is a picture I have not seen before and is part of the Getty Archives. Although Getty have released thousands of their pictures into the public domain, it appears that this particular picture still requires a licence. That is why I have added a link to the Getty Archive picture below rather than display it here.

I am not quite sure of the location of this picture but as market barrows can be seen in the distance through and archway, I am wondering if this might be Angel Lane.

Could it be Salway Alley where the stallholders of the 50s and 60s also stored their barrows?  Same side as Angel Lane opposite the Two Puddings.

Abbey could be right for that period, but I think that in later years the shop must have expanded and moved up just past Martin Street, before you got to Woolworths, before you got to Barnes?? music shop!
