Streatham High Road, Streatham, with advertising bill boards pasted on the side of a shop. Adverts include Bovril, Lemco and Camp Coffee. The Beehive Coffee House on the right was built in 1878-9 by the Temperance movement next to the Pied Bull pub to provide an alternative non-alcoholic attraction for workers. The building survives today as a solicitor's office and a day nursery, but the shops opposite have been replaced with a Sainsbury's supermarket. From the Bovril Album recording bill posting sites, c.1905.
