Justice's pure bread, Greenwich

Born in 1850, James Justice's bakery and pastry shop was located at 195 Greenwich High Road. His name appears in directories published between 1882 and the late 1920s. When James retired, he was certainly succeeded by his son William, who had his own bakery at 67 Thames Street.

Between 1882 and 1908 at least (but no longer by 1911), James Baker also served as a Post Office's Receiving Officer.

This ghost sign is at the back of the building and would have been seen from the eastern end of the platforms at Greenwich station and from passing trains. It's a shame part of it disapppeared when the window was opened.

Pure Bread,
& Pastry.

Location: Prince of Orange Lane
