Islington’s Golden Mile – drapery, corsetry and fancy goods

September 28, 2023 @ 15:00 - 17:00

A wander along Upper Street looking at remnants of lovely old shop fronts in the form of doorway mosaics, curved glass and gilded signs harking back when this thoroughfare was known as Islington’s Golden Mile, offering top quality products in beautifully presented surroundings – a truly A1 shopping experience. See evidence of, and hear about, umbrella makers, handmade corsetry, beautiful shoes, luxurious fabrics, homewares, provisions, furriers, furnishers, tailors, toy shops and tricks.
