643-645 London Road
A new development
If you have been travelling down the London Road recently in the direction of Southend, you may have noticed a development of the property near the corner of Woodfield Road, numbers 643-645, London Road. The developer is Parkview Developments and their website below is worth examining to see other work in the area.
Behind the black hoarding is revealed the original signage of two shop fronts: number 643 is revealed as Broadvue Stores but next door at 645 is less clear and needs some more investigation. It looks like it could be Edgar M. Bullock (Newsagent) – this information was spotted in a 1933 copy of Kelly’s Directory.
It would be good to hear from anyone who has memories of these two shops.
