This blog looks at aspects of the historic built environment in British towns and cities.
I am currently writing a history of British chain stores between c.1840 and c.1970, provisionally titled ‘Chain Stores in the Golden Age of the British High Street’. So, for the time being, most of my posts will focus on multiple retailers and historic shopfronts.
For some of my previous publications have a look at Books.
