Shop in Chrisp Street
The former premises of the True Form shoe shop at 69 Chrisp Street, Poplar, run by J Sears & Co. The display windows and entrance have been boarded up with timber planks, and the door padlocked. Only the glass shop fascia and the decorative mosaic tiles on the floor of the 'in-go' are visible. Printed signs on the hoarding advertise 'drastic reductions', 'prices slashed' and 'big bargains' on ladies' and children's shoes. A sign also tells customers that the shop has moved to 3 Market Way, the newly built Chrisp Street Market shopping precinct just along the road. Next door to the right is a demolition site, with nineteenth-century terraced housing in Southill Street visible in the distance. A BRW (British Relay Wireless) wagon can be seen to the right of the shop behind wire fencing. Signs promote the company's 'built-in' relay radio and television service and invite potential customers to call for a demonstration 'without obligation' at 64 Bow Road, E3. None of these buildings exist today; the site has been redeveloped and is now occupied by a Co-Op supermarket.
