The Smallest Shop in London, ca. 1900

London’s best known shops are often the giant department stores which draw in the tourist crowds, but this photo from the early 1900s shows one of the smallest shops in London - a shoe salesman with a 1.2 square meter shoe store.

This lovely looking chap runs a shoe store right below the window of what looks like a grocery/general store. What a slice of life!
