Upton Park – Store 293

374 – 378 Green Street, London E13 9AP

Woolworths opened in Green Street, East London in 1927. Historically Green Street is the road that divides East Ham from West Ham. There isn’t much information the Woolworths store, but from the address we know it was very close to Upton Park tube station. Green Street was heavily bombed in WW2, but we have no information as to whether Woolworths was hit. From the style of the building today, we can guess there was a 1950s makeover.

The store closed in February 1994, and today it is Peacocks. But look up and you’ll see some Woolworths architecture.
