Sadly, I walked past the Penge shop this week and the lovely frontage has been ripped out (no doubt the interior tiles will vanish too) and been replaced by a horrible modern steel and glass shopfront. What a shame!
Pity they couldn't have kept the nicest shopfront in Penge High Street like they did for the (less attractive) one that was converted to a cafe in Bromley. Barbarians!

How dreadful. The optician in the Crystal Palace building said he loved keeping the Kennedy's tiles and things.

And now, sadly, the old glass and gilt shop sign over the old Kennedys in Penge has disappeared too. Don't know when it went, but it has been replaced by a large patch of plaster or cement. Only hope it went to a good home...

Yes it's called Christine's Meat and Fish.
From the bus I once saw a bloke (presumably not Christine) drop a chicken on the pavement. Nice.

Sympathetic red frontage.

The Walworth Road shop was nominated for a Southwark blue plaque.
