George Davison Reid took this photo from the junction of the Strand and Craven Street. In the centre can be seen Nelson's Column. To the left a view of the facade of the Strand branch of J.Lyons' Corner House restaurant and food hall. The food hall, located on the ground floor, sold a range of Lyon's products including cakes, biscuits and hand-made chocolates some of which can be seen in the elaborate window display. Opposite, at No 456 The Strand, is a branch of Jaeger, the fashion retailer that had expanded dramatically during the 1920s.
