A feature of the past – the shop sun blinds, canopy or awnings. Once so common and now very rare.

I remember them as being the first thing to be attended to when opening the shop. Usually the ‘boy’ had this job. They had to be carefully pulled out from the housing using a long window pole with a hook on the end. Then sometimes the end pieces fitted.

A very useful shelter for pedestrians when there was a sudden rain shower.

stroud green road looks so clean and majestic. Unlike how it appears today. My childhood home and area. Thanks for posting.
