Spotted on London In Sight : the Old Curiosity Shop . Photographer Stephanie Wolff, who focuses on the city's "overlap of history and myth," paid a photographic visit to the historic shop, located just off the Strand; the building dates back to the sixteenth century and is believed to be the inspiration for the Dickens novel of the same name. Built from timber salvaged from old ships, the shop now houses the operations of footwear impresario Daita Kimura, who creates evocative shoes for the London dandy. Go to the Old Curiosity Shop for more information.
