Two pictures from Snowsfields first the Butchers shop now replaced by a Coffee shop and next door was the Greengrocers now an empty shop.

Can anyone remember these shops and if so have you a story to tell about them?

I lived above that butchers shop in Snowfields from 1950 to 1960. The butchers shop was called Brushwheelers their cold store entrance was on our stairway and it always smelled of meat and sawdust. The greengrocer was called Fishers and the sweet shop (to the left of the butchers but not in this pic) was Nathens

Snowfields,Boys from Snowfields School in Bermondsey. 1894 Charles Booth's researchers, found these children sitting limp and chilled on the school benches, puny, pale-faced, scantily clad and badly shod.
