James Smith & Sons
Walking into the James Smith & Sons umbrella shop is like taking a trip to a museum. Ths family-run business was created an astonishing 170 years ago and its store bears all its original hallmarks. All the original Victorian fittings are there; a testament to their sureness that people will come to their store wihout seasonal enticements. Such a range of umbrellas is almost bewildering; after a visit to this New Oxford Street store, you just can't wait until it rains.
