A Peek at the Boutique: John Stephen and Lady Jane

Many, many thanks once again to the wonderful Len Fernandes, who provided us with a fantastic image of the Pussy Galore boutique on Carnaby Street (from 1971) back in April. He has now sent two further images: one of John Stephen’s many boutiques at number 33 and also of Harry Fox’s Lady Jane.

Again, these give us precious glimpses of the somewhat wilted locale; a few years before the rot set in completely, but a good few years after its mid-1960s heyday. Proof that it is always a good idea to photograph seemingly unimportant scenes and buildings, even if the importance may take a few decades to become apparent.

Please do not repost these images without full credit to Len, thank you.

  1. Hi there, the photo of Lady Jane is fantastic, I love the way you can see right into the window! Harry Fox, owner of Lady jane, is my late Grandfather and I would very much like to get in contact with Len Fernandes to see if I can get a print of this photo. If you could put me in touch that would be fantastic! Many thanks, James Fox

    1. James Fox,

      The Lady Jane photo was scanned from an old colour slide I took in 1971 so the quality isn’t very good. I do not have an actual print. I can send you the scanned image as an email attachment if you like.
