10-12 Stockwell Gate – Cheapest Cigs, Gala Take Away & Coffee Lounge
The takeaway is no new invention. Archaeologists found over 200 thermopolia in the ruins of Pompeii. These were 'cook shops' where you could buy ready-to-eat food.
The three-storey building has painted brickwork on the upper storeys and two late 20th-century shop fronts. The building has attractive upper floors and shop fronts but is in poor condition and the internal metal grilles on number 10 detract from its overall appearance.
Explore evidence for original shopfront and reinstate if possible. Replace sash windows, remove paint from brickwork, repair gutter, remove UPVC bottom section from the downpipe and replace with cast iron.
