Havering Museum

Advent Day 4 – Romford High Street photograph

In the run up to Christmas we’ll show some of the objects added to the Museum’s collection in the last 12 months. These objects will be on display at the Museum until we close for Christmas on 16th December.IMG_08712

This photograph is a snapshot of the far end of Romford High Street that is almost cut off now from the half outside the museum. Recorded in this photograph are some of the many 18th and 19th century houses and premises lost during Romford’s redevelopment in the latter half of the 20th century. Identifiable businesses include Jubilee Coffee Tavern, W. Barrow, and Frank J. Dully plumber (one shop either side). The children were probably paid to pose.
