Title
Shop in Chrisp Street
Description
The former premises of Cane Stores Ltd, grocers at 60 Chrisp Street, Poplar, on the corner with Willis Street. Above the corner entrance to the grocery is a wooden advertisement board. Faded lettering appears to read For Good Worth and Goodworth's. The two arched upper-floor windows are boarded up; fixed to the wall beside the left-hand window is a fire hydrant sign. The metal fixtures for the shop's external lighting and awning are still visible. Full-height metal shutters cover the entrance and display windows, showing some minor graffiti. Round the corner in Willis Street, a man and a woman walk away from the camera, past a free-standing Royal Mail letter box and an old street lamp. Further down Willis Street can be seen a terrace of nineteenth-century buildings and the entrance to Hay Currie Street on the left. While these streets still exist, none of the buildings remain today. The site of Cane Stores is now a car park and Willis Street has been redeveloped for modern housing.
