Photo 7: Quickie Heel Bar

Quickie Heel Bar, then and now, dated grunge

Now House of Fashion and Mobile Accessories, 198 Southwark Park Road, Bermondsey, London SE16

• Vici MacDonald on the Quickie Heel Bar photo: “Even in 2002 this amusing sign was a throwback, a 1970s vision in orange and black. They don’t make 3D plastic fascias like this any more; these days it’s all inkjet photos on vinyl. Exhibit A is its generic blue replacement, the multi-faceted House of Fashion and Mobile Accessories. I hope Quickie still lurks beneath its dull facade.”
