Ying Ho, London Shoe Rebuilder J. Poole

Ying Ho, London Shoe Rebuilder J. Poole, 232 Upper Richmond Road, Putney, Borough of Wandsworth, London SW15, 1981 • Now for a few really ancient shots I took from a bus back in Routemaster days. This Chinese restaurant facade was retro even in 1981; amazingly the cobbler next door is still there so I was able to track it down via the might of Google Street View. Ying Ho is now Lazaro Artisan Bakery, while J. Poole was recently painted dark blue and looks less attractive.
