The Modern Shop: Architecture & Shopping between the Wars
In the 1920s and 1930s architects produced a number of striking shop designs in Britain. Influenced by the 1925 Paris Exhibition and other Continental examples, many shops and chain stores rebuilt their premises, or at least modernised their façades.

Many of these innovative interiors and façades are now sadly gone.
