St Albans – Store 311

33 – 39 St Peters Street, St Albans, Herts

Woolworths opened in St Albans in 1928. It was in an existing building, which you can see below – the small store in the centre with the canopies and two 1930s cars in front of it.

In the 1970s, the market was held in front  of the shops, look at this photo and that pram.

The store lasted until the end, and here you can see the store had been extended to the right in the past.
