I am trying to find any pictures or information about 231 Westminster Bridge Road where my Great Grandfather Charles (Carlo) Moriggia had a confectioner/pastry shop for many years. I know he was operating there in 1875 onwards and by 1890 it was listed as a coffee house and by 1905 the business was listed as Ďdining roomsí. He died back in Italy in 1906 so anything between 1875 and around 1906 is of great interest to me. At some point he was also operating at 229 next door.

You'll find several photographs of nos 270-278, at the north end of the road near the bridge, which were demolished to make way for County Hall. Not number 231, but it will give you an idea of what your great-grandfather's shop might have been like. The row includes a 'Dining & Tea Room' for example!
Rather impressive horse-drawn traffic jam in one photograph.
