Nanny's Bloomers

A Memory of Balham

I lived in Balham for many years, and when my Nan came to visit, her first request was a trip to a little shop near the market that sold 'old fashioned' knickers, stays, liberty bodices etc, I have fond memories of that lovely little shop sadly long gone now, but cant remember the name, can anyone help to jog my memory.

It was probably Harpers. One side was corsetry, the other haberdashery.
