The Duke of Kent aka Swiss Cottage aka Brace's,
In the medium term if anything works it will be automation, but I think this will have to go much further than just automated tills. If we want actual shops in the the future I think we will have to make concession on facial recognition and robots filling the shelves.
here at Michael's Bookshop where I work in Ramsgate we have pretty much gone the other way, but if we had to make a profit rather than a proportion of our living then I think we would be long gone.
on to the mystery photo answers
Here text about this photo from the book August 1940 link to buy the book although you would be better off coming into the bookshop and browsing it
"Station Approach Road
In Wrecked houses met his gaze in Elmstone Road. It was there that an aged lady was taken from her Anderson shelter which had sustained practically a direct hit. She was badly injured, but is now on the way to recovery.
In Station Approach Road; and the lower end of Stanley Road, there was not a single house which had not suffered. One at least was entirely demolished and others were minus roofs it was in this neighbourhood that a police officer was killed (No. 29. P.C. Ticehurst) as he was sleeping after being on duty the previous night."

Here at Michael's Bookshop in Ramsgate it has been a fairly quiet day, I put this down to the weather and the busses not running to here due to the roadworks

It's a strange thing to me how in what seems to be a retail disaster here in Ramsgate the bookshop mostly rumbles along as though the world outside hasn't really changed.
