Marks and Spencer, Spring Gardens, Buxton
This 1950s view of Spring Gardens shows Marks and Spencer almost unchanged from the view today. The shops to either side had less permanence. The famous brand first started at Kirkgate Market, Leeds, in 1884 and became a common sight on most high streets by the time this photograph was taken. Glamour and style came bouncing back after the constraints of the Second World War with shops like M&S leading the way.
