M. Rose & Sons

Matthew Rose & Sons began as a draper’s shop at 335 Mare Street, Hackney, in London.

By 1868 the business had expanded to become a department store selling furniture and household goods, occupying 347-357 Mare Street and 2-18 Amhurst Road.

By 1900 M. Rose & Sons was the leading department store in Hackney which was a vibrant and fashionable shopping area at this time.

The store continued to tade until 1936 when it was taken over by Marks & Spencer.
