LONDON OMNIBUS, STRAKER SQUIRE 1906 - by PROMIGEO
Hall, Leyton e10, Warner estate
Interesting mattress fact n 86. According to IBISWorld, a market research company : 'the mattress manufacturing industry is expected to contract over the five years through 2013-14,...The industry has been adversely affected by weakness in the UK housing market and consumer confidence, which has resulted in consumers deferring purchases of new furniture, including bedding and mattresses.
I suppose Walthamstow is bucking the trend.
Houses in this Walthamstow street are unusual in having bedrooms on the second floor, built into the roof space like a ready-made loft conversion. Some have brick gable fronts with a large window, others have square dormers, originally with lead roofs. Part of the Warner Estate I think.
