Bromley Dairy in Devons Road
Bromley Dairy at 6 Devons Road on the corner with Botolph Road, Bromley-by-Bow, during World War II. The proprietor's name, DW Jones, can be seen above the doorway. The glass in the entrance door has been taped up as an air raid precaution and the size of the display windows greatly reduced by black-out material, leaving only small rectangles through which stacks of tinned food can be seen. Signs on the door advertise 'Cream Fresh Daily' and Lyons Tea. A belisha beacon stands on the pavement outside the shop. Timber braces shore up the building next door, the bases painted white as a hazard warning for pedestrians. An ornate street lamp marks this building as a public house (the Rose and Crown). There is a saloon car parked outside and further along the street, a large horse-drawn cart (minus the horse) and a flat-bed truck. A lorry is parked on the opposite side of the road. The old dairy is still in retail use today and while the Rose and Crown is Grade II listed (listing number 1065211), it no longer trades as a pub. This part of Devons Road has been pedestrianised and renamed Stroudley Walk. Botolph Road no longer exists and has been replaced by an alley leading into a housing estate.
