Just a thought. Search the London Metropolitan Archives catalogue. Also newspapers.

My mother's maternal family owned and ran a large draper's / outfitter's shop on Guildford High Street. When the shop finally closed in the 1960s, our family member scratched his head as he was in possession of all the old records. He deposited them at Surrey History Centre where there are boxes available to peruse with items such as wage books, staff records, etc and photos of the shop through the ages (with photos I hadn't seen of my great-grandparents).

Thanks very much for your reply. I did fear that was probably the case when I read of the bombing.
Does anyone know of an existence of any furniture catalogues?
Thanks again

Thanks but sadly they don't have any. I have checked them before. They have lots of others though.
