Then and Now: 246 Brixton Hill
Photographic comparisons of old and modern views of Lambeth
The shopfront of R.Dove and Co's pet shop at 246 Brixton Hill.
There's adverts in the shop window for 'Spratt's Parrot Food,' Ryde's Bird Foods,''Dog cakes' and 'Spratt's Bird Seeds.'
The owner/shop assistant is holding what looks like a black cat.

There's now no sign of the shop, the house in the background or even the address, with a contemporary building spreading the adjacent address '244' over three shops (244a, 244b and 244c).
