Fortnum & Mason has been trading since 1707 and their Christmas window displays have become synonymous with the festive season.
With 2020 being like no other in living memory, they decided to pay homage to their history this year by recreating windows from years gone by. 1930, 1934, 1936, 1957, 1962, 2008, 2015 to be precise, plus a new design created for this year.
Take a look at F&M’s own site here
I have just ventured to London for the first time since February and as has become my own tradition I am posting this year’s windows once more.
Usually F&M is a thronging mass of day trippers, tourists and commuters this time of year and a visit to the iconic store can be a rather unpleasant experience.
Not so this year due to you know what. Restricted numbers at any one time, a one way system and masks aplenty (does anybody know how to stop your glasses steaming up?).
What hasn’t changed are the prices (£46 for a Christmas pud) and the lovely look of the season created in store.
