London's Fag End

One of the last of these shops was Shervingtons which proudly displayed above its door “Ye Olde Tobacco Shop”. The shop was founded in 1864 and situated in Staple Inn, the 16th century block of offices at the eastern end of Holborn, the image of which once adorned tobacco tins as Old Holborn’s trademark. It appeared that the shop remained in its Olde ways and with bitter irony had No Smoking stickers displayed giving a further clue to its demise. Another tobacconist to bite the dust (or should that be ash) is Smith & Sons which only closed recently. Situated at the southern end of Charing Cross Road the shop opened in 1869 as Charing Cross Road’s first shop which had such a wide range of cigars they boasted of a walk in humidor.
