Canham, general draper; East Sheen

Several cafes, newsagents, estate agents, and a railway station can be found along Sheen Lane, but no draper. Still, the only ghost sign in the area was for such a shop.

Another sign was originally painted on this wall but apart from a couple of "S"s not much is left of it.

The Canham shop was located at 40 Sheen Lane, at the corner with St Leonard's Road, fifty meters south of this sign, on the opposite side of the road.

I am new proprietor of 40 Sheen Lane. We have opened a restaurant called 'Canham Restaurant & Haberdashers Bar' in the site formally Rayner Canham Drapier. Thank you for posting this as it helped us a lot in finding out the history of the building.
