Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of the ornate interior of a fashionable shop. Customers in the shawl department look at shawls draped on pillars. This shop occupied part of Schomberg House, Pall Mall, London, and flourished from 1769 to 1857; this interior was remodelled in 1851. The house was originally built in 1698 – today only the facade remains as it was.
