40-42

40 High Street

Photographer Frank Smith ran his business from here from at least 1871, after which it was the home of Edward Badcock who traded as a mercer and draper from Nos 41 and 42 next door. Another member of the Badcock family, Henry, had gone into partnership with Leonard Lewis in 1881 forming Lewis & Badcock, estate agents, which occupied the building from the 1930s before being replaced by estate agent Elliott & Green. It is now Hoxton Bakehouse.

41-42 High Street

Once the site of picturesque Tudor cottages which were occupied for many years by the greengrocer Mrs Hapgood, these were demolished in 1842 and replaced by the present building. Principally a residence until the 1890s, the site was then occupied by E Badcock, a mercer and draper, followed by agriculturalists SCATS. It then became Chance shoes and is now Clarks.
