Goodbye to a beloved local icon

Saying goodbye to a local legend is hard 😖. Whiteley’s (Bayswater) was opened in 1911 by the Lord Mayor of London and was London’s first department store. It closed late last year and is currently being converted into luxury flats...like everything in London. The building is listed so at least the exterior will remain!
