Hallams Shop After Fire, High Street & Chequer Street. Caption from "St Albans in Old Photographs" [ed. Mullins], p.35, reads: "Hallam's Shop after a fire. Although the cause of the fire is not known, Hallam's stock of lamp oils would have been highly inflammable. The shop, on the corner of Chequer Street and High Street, was rebuilt and Hallam's branched out to include general hardware, gas fitting and plumming. It is occupied today [in 1994] by General Accident."
