Just around the corner from where I live there is a shop called G A Moore Menswear. It takes its extraordinary place alongside the Edwardian shopfronts of the very attractive and much-loved Myddleton Road, an area that is gradually being revived, brushed up, renovated, restored to its Edwardian splendour. But not G A Moore’s.
Instead, this menswear shop has been untouched since Brian Moore, son of the original Mr George Moore, shut up shop one day in 1999, went upstairs to his flat above the shop and just left his window display to melt into the future, complete with mould, must and memories. He’s still up there.
