4. Untouched for 13 Years
In 2012, a London tour guide, noticed a North London shop frozen in time. “When Mr Moore senior died in 1969 his widow and son, Brian, continued to run the shop. When Mr Moore junior decided to retire, around 13 years ago, he simply stopped trading, he didn’t clear the window display but left it just as it was on the last day of business”.
From the most recent Google street view photographs, it looks like the store was eventually cleared out and although currently vacant, the good news is, the original facade has actually been restored.
