GREEN DRAGON COURT.

Postby kiwi » Tue Apr 11, 2017 3:46 am

Green Dragon Court connected Borough High Street with Borough Market. The latter dates from the mid-18th century and is a successor to the mediaeval market. The seemingly ancient shopfront in the c 1930s picture states it is a fraud, being a 17th century Dutch shop-front design that was added to the building in 1923. The first picture is dated 1890s and to me looks like the same shop front ??
