This week's pictures show how homes can change to shops and vice versa.

The first shows Dr Long's and Jolliffe's, High Street, Wanstead, (image courtesy of Wanstead Historical Society), and the same site is now taken up by shops.

The other pair show an undated image of Northcote Road, Walthamstow, (image courtesy of Vestry House Museum picture archive), in which a general store is now a house.
