Update on Hawkins & Co. Ltd., Hanwell
Earlier today I passed by Hanwell and noticed that the sign promoting Hawkins & Co Ltd, 'the West London Grocery & Provision Merchants' is now partly hidden by the steel frame of the building being erected next door. Once the walls go up, it will be gone for decades to come. That may happen in the next few days, weeks at a push.
