Shop counter from Sainsbury's Peckham. This cashier's counter was removed from the Sainsbury's branch at 61-3 Rye Lane, Peckham, Southwark. The branch opened in 1931 and, at closure in the early 1980s, was the last surviving Sainsbury's 'counter' branch in London. Along both sides of the store were marble service counters staffed by 24 shop assistants. Goods were paid for at the cashier counter at the back of the store.
1931 AD - 1983 AD
