London Shop Fronts

Just a short stroll through the city’s streets reveals some of the unusual shop names and architecture of London, the many layers of history and irony that are contained here. These photos have been added to the Flickr pool by a few photographers with an eye for detail. Reminds me of the Who’d a Thought It? Any interesting shop names near you?

  1. That last interesting building — it’s off Hackney Road, if I remember right — is called the FAT House, according to a London architecture book called “Spectacular Vernacular.” The architect is Sean Griffiths, and he designed it to be his own home. FAT stands for Fashion, Architecture & Taste, the architecture firm where Griffiths is a director.
