I think, Prof, that it's probably their premises at 17 Cross Cheaping. Perhaps the word reflected in the window - "ORGANS" - relates to the piano and organ warehouse of Sir Herbert Marshall & Sons across the road at 41 Cross Cheaping

Thanks for this MR, I was not certain. Any guess as to the building on the left of Mattersons? It reminded me of the Corn Exchange (Empire). I had not noticed the reflection in the shop window until you pointed it out. Edited by member, 10th Mar 2019 5:33 pm

Hi, here's a couple of images from the 1912 directory and the 1926 directory. Both Frank Ltd. and Mattersons were still listed as being in Cross Cheaping at least until 1935 but Mattersons had also acquired number 18 by then. Don't ask me why but Sir Herbert Marshall is only listed in the Commercial section (from the 1926 directory again). Edited by member, 10th Mar 2019 6:55 pm

Heathite My grandparents did Christmas shopping there 1912. 14 years later 1926, my parents did Christmas shopping there 1926. 14 years later 1940, I did . . Oh my, not one of those shops open. Most of those shops ran a Christmas club, even back in 1912, but I believe in 1940, because of the increased rationing. they stopped. Cheers

Hi Kaga, interesting, it certainly was a busy area. So close to another interesting and busy area, Butcher Row with Little Butcher Row. A different world. Thumbs up
