I love this photo of the fish counter at Welwyn Stores, now John Lewis, taken in July 1939. The fish counter reminds me of shopping with my parents as a girl. I always wanted fresh fish or meat but had to make do with gristle sausages!

I think the picture of the staircase shows how the layout of the building hasn’t really changed. Where are the escalators though? I wonder what date they were put in, does anybody know?
