J.R. Blanche (Happy Shopper)

J.R. Blanche (Happy Shopper), 76 & 74 Brixton Road, Borough of Lambeth, London SW9, 2015 • Blimey, even minimarts are revealing hipsterish legacy signs now – believe it or not, this is part of a Happy Shopper. According to Oval History, no. 76 was a newsagent between 1903-1928 at least, and the Happy Shopper is Sri-Lankan owned (they like a nice shopfront, as evidenced by the beautiful Lihiniya).
