    Some interesting archive images (668 if you search 'Brixton') at Collage - The London Picture Archive

    You can zoom into the images if you visit their site.

    Other parts of London are available.

    Not in my time (since 1978). Maybe they have a company archive at HQ which could give you the answer.
    They used to be into community involvement - I remember they gave £5000 to the disabled training place which was at 336 Brixton Road around 1994.

    M&S did have a trading floor upstairs, its been mention on here before, although it must have been pre 1970, cos I don't remember seeing it open

    Happy Christmas all
