A Wanstead butchers has been remembered in a new book celebrating London shops.

“I painted AG Dennis in 2015, and I’m pleased now that I did, as I wasn’t to know it would close the following year… All the shops in my book are painted because they had wonderful shop frontages with beautiful lettering and design, but also because they were or are excellent neighbourhood businesses,” said artist Eleanor Crow.

Shopfronts of London is published by Batsford and Spitalfields Life Books (£14.99).
