Corner of Chrisp Street and Tetley Street
The corner of Chrisp Street with Tetley Street, Poplar, showing the derelict Home & Colonial store at number 44 Chrisp Street, with John Miller's bakery on the far left at number 46. Part of the shop fascia has survived on the side elevation and the letters 'The Hom' can still be seen. Also still visible are the shop's trademark leaded bottle-glass light transoms above the display windows. The rest of the windows and the front fascia have been boarded up with wooden planks. An estate car, a van and a truck as well as two market barrows are tightly parked along Tetley Street. A sign for 'teas' is visible above the upper sash windows of a property further along the same street on the right. The Home & Colonial Stores were once one of the UK's largest grocery chains. They were eventually incorporated into the Presto and then the Safeway retail chains. These buildings and Tetley Street itself no longer exist. The site is now occupied by a car park.
