Lost British department stores

Long before John Lewis and Debenhams came to Oxford Street, there was Marshall & Snellgrove. This luxurious store was founded in the 1800s, with many other branches later opened around Britain. After struggling throughout the war years, it merged with Debenhams in 1919.
