Late publicity for TA Harris plumbers' merchant

Published:  08 January, 2010

LONDON: The derelict former TA Harris plumbers' merchant building in London's New Kent Road features in a "credit crunch Britain" calendar.


The calendar features boarded-up shops and broken windows from around the country. October's picture shows the former TA Harris plumbers' merchant building in New Kent Road that was the scene of a huge fire in March this year.

November's image is the vandalised "to(i)let" sign on the former public conveniences at the junction of nearby Tower Bridge Road and Grange Road.

Southwark Council, which is marketing the premises to let, said the toilets represent an "exciting opportunity" for a new cafe or restaurant.
