Don't suppose there's any page that lists them? Guessing too many.maybe?
Not as far as I know - there were millions of them - literally!
london metropolitan archives may have the info, but looks like it's not all online.
Yeah, I've tried looking at old papers/news reports online but haven't found anything for that particular part of Herne Hill
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.

The fountain- that should have been kept.
Did marks and spencers have sales floors upstairs?
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
