The little shop shown in Virginia Smith’s drawing (2000) was situated on the north side of Chalk Farm railway bridge. Sited where Tann-Rokka, the furniture shop and florist opposite, has its store for outdoor furniture and pots, it was demolished in about 2000.

From 1945 until about the late 1960s there were more odd-numbered shops, presumably at the bottom of the hill as Regent’s Park Road curves down right towards the Round House:
- 149 Wallace Spiers, coal merchant (stables)
- 151 boot repairer
- 153 tailor
- 157 manufacturing upholsterers
There was also once a toy merchant, a net curtain service, and a repairing tailor.
