Swan and Edgar

Swan and Edgar was a famous London Department Store in the corner of Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus. The shop was hit in a Zeppelin raid during World War One and had to be redesigned. It was taken over by the Drapery Trust in 1927 which became Debenhams who eventually closed the store down in 1982.
