This blog is about ordinary buildings with extraordinary histories. Expect musings on old shops, stores, hospitals, workhouses, garages, car parks and factories – but especially shops. Everyday buildings tend to be underappreciated, but they are as much a part of our collective experience as the finest churches and country houses.

  1. Wondered if you may like a photo, I assume was taken in London, but I do not know for sure. My dad is in the photo in front of a fountain with a building in the rear that reads “Dolcis Shoes” carved in the building.
