A real time capsule…..

Frozen in time: The clothes store left as it was on the last day of trading 12 years ago with £6 shirts and pastel-coloured bow-ties

  • George Moore Menswear in London has remained untouched for a decade
  • Brian Moore inherited the store in Bowes Park from his father in 1969
  • But Mr Moore couldn’t bring himself to clear out the store when he retired
  • Store has been left exactly as it was on its last day of business 12 years ago

This unique shop-front has been frozen in time for more than a decade after its owner left it exactly as it was on the last day of business. Brian Moore took over George Moore Menswear in Bowes Park, North West London, after his father passed away in 1969. But when it came time for his own retirement 12 years ago, Mr Moore couldn’t bring himself to clear out the family shop, so left everything exactly as it was.
