Outside of a 1925 fancy draper/haberdashery shop in the front room of a Victorian/Edwardian terraced house showing details of the tiled garden path, wrought iron railings, gas lamp, sash windows

The shopkeeper's name is to the left of the door and a shop gas lamp is over the display window to illuminate it.

The outside of a 1925 fancy draper/haberdashery shop in the front room of a Victorian/Edwardian terraced house.

The photo shows how widespread was the style of the Victorian/Edwardian terraces as there is so much similarity between this house in Leicester and the Victorian/Edwardian terraces in North London: the typical tiled garden path (which would have been tiled in red and black), the wrought iron front railings on a low brick wall and the sash windows.

The photo is courtesy of Gary Fleet. The shopkeeper is his great great grandmother, Eliza M. Mcauley (1858-1941), at Green Lane Road, Leicester.
