TQ2873 : Robert's of Balham

taken 33 years ago, near to Upper Tooting, Wandsworth, Great Britain

Robert's of Balham
Robert's of Balham
Twenty-first century travellers through Balham station will often have noticed the 1950s lettering proclaiming "Roberts for Ekcovision" which still survives on the top of a row of shops, although the electrical goods shop which was advertised by it has now gone. This image shows the shop as it was: the precise date of the image is not known but it is thought to have been taken around 1985.
Many thanks to Alison Sinclair, whose photograph this is and whose family used to own the shop.
