Then and Now: Coldharbour Lane and Loughborough Rd
Photographic comparisons of old and modern views of Lambeth
c. 1905 Coldharbour Lane, looking west past the junction with Loughborough Road.
To the right you can see Brown and Son, hosiers at No.228, offering 'Special Value in White Shirts,' which are knocking out at 3/6 each or 10 bob (50p) for three.
Further up the road is a shop selling 'Boots and Shoes with a branch of David Greig next door.
Just before the railway bridge you can see the Warrior public house.

March 2006 Sad to say, but Loughborough Junction remains a miserable, run down area in 2006.
The Warrior (aka The Junction) closed in 2003 with much of the building being converted to - you've guessed it - flats (see: Lost pubs of Brixton).
The smart Edwardian shop fronts and awnings have been replaced by cheap plastic signs with the fine four-lamp gaslight now an advertising hoarding.
