Marks & Spencer

 Marks initial open stall in the snow at Leeds in 1884.

From a pedlar’s tray in 1882, Polish refugee Michael Marks began his Leeds stall in 1884. After a sales girl died of pneumonia, he moved to Leeds indoor Kirkgate Market in 1894. That year accountant Tom Spencer became his partner. From 1907 son Simon Marks was the first retailer to go direct to UK makers.

 M&S at 61 Lime Street in Liverpool, 1903. Hazle’s model is based on this archive image. The open cast-iron front seen above was shuttered at night. It was the top store in 1906!
