A Glimpse into the Former Shops of Upminster
Shop sign renewal and renovations can sometimes give us a brief glimpse into the past. In this case, fitters working on the former Poetic Design shop in Station Road (next to the small Costa Coffee) reveal it was once two shops, Jeannette which sold fruit & veg and Valerie’s the florist (maybe from the 1980s?).
Last year, as the former Alishan Restaurant became Elbi’s, refurbishment work revealed it was once known as Mead’s Bar in decades gone by.
