The Old Curiosity Shop

The Old Curiosity Shop is a cool and quirky store inside a building that’s rumoured to be one of the oldest in London. The building itself was constructed in 1567, and has survived the Great Fire of London and two world wars. However the age of the store is shrouded in uncertainty. It’s supposed this shop inspired Charles Dickens, who penned a novel that shares its name. Whether that’s true or not, is subject to opinion. However, one thing for sure is that it is a pretty cool building, with the sign giving you a glimpse of how London stores would have looked back in the day. Great shot, especially if you’re active on the gram.
