Old shopfront plans

By Neil Hamilton

Years ago whilst the old Oxhey Drive/Seacroft Gardens council depot was being demolished, the demolition team allowed me to have a poke around the site. In an old lean to with a leaky roof I discovered heaps of old documentation, maps and plans of the estate-all ruined by damp, mould and wasp damage. I managed to salvage a few documents, scraps of plans and maps and several quotes and plans for shop fronts for planned shops in St Andrews Road and Station Approach. All were in pretty poor condition but at least theyve been saved for the nation!  I’ve attached a couple of the plans and will include more later.

These are for Gilmours at 2, St Andrews Rd and Mesrs Jeffrey Martin 22, St Andrews Rd.
