Burton (Antique Warehouse)

Burton (Antique Warehouse), 9-14 Depford Broadway, Borough of Lewisham, London SE8, 2002 • This grille, which I spotted at ground level,  alerted me to photograph the shop above it, but if I’d stepped back I’d have seen the whole building was magnificent. By 2012, the neatly-reworded cartouches were covered and the building empty. For more on Burton’s architecture see this article on the Newark Branch, and the National Archives has a good general history.
