148-154 High Road, Streatham, SW16 1DF
Woolworths opened their 78th store in Streatham, South London, in 1918. From the below photo you can see they built their own building amongst the continuous architecture of Streatham High Road, in the 1950s or 60s.

This windows on the top floor were filled in at some time. The store became a general store in the 2000s, and I actually visited this store – I bought some cans of paint to do a makeover to my bedroom. The paint was at the back of the store.
The store closed when the company went bust in December 2008, and it became a 99p store, which in turn became Poundland. You can still see the Woolworths architecture above – though I must admit this isn’t one of my favourite styles.
