According to a photo on the London Tramways website, at some point in the 20th century this address (and number 12a next door) was occupied by Mortimer's Fruit Stores. According to another photo on the same website, at another point these two addresses were occupied by Bowditch & Grant (a firm that provided services related to estate agency).

According to a photo on Flickr, as of c. 1985 the premises were occupied by a shop called Stitches. According to another, Stitches was still there in 1989, and according to yet another, it was still there in June 1999 (note the A-board offering zips and buttons as well as the shop sign). It also appears as Stitches in the 2nd edition of the Burrows Communications "Shop Til You Drop" guide (date unknown, but probably around 2000-2002).

Existence last checked in December 2019.
