F.Taylor & Son. 89 - 91 Lambeth Walk.

This shop, which stood on the corner of Lambeth Walk and Fitzalan Street, was established in the 1840's, it sold a variety of clothing, hats and baby items. The impressive Jacobean Revival style building, seen here from an advertisement from 1918 and also in a photograph from the 60's, survived the Second World War, only to fall foul of the urban planners, when it was demolished in the 1960's to make way for new housing.

Do you know anybody who worked in F.Taylor's? Do you have any photographs, or do you know any local history about this fine shop? If you do I would be happy to hear from you.
