This is the Uhuru Wholefoods independent health food shop. These days the shop is a family concern run by Annette and her relatives who live above the shop. However, Uhuru started in the 1970s as a co-operative and was an active hub of local activism at its original location over the road at number 35. See the page for number 35 for more on the organization's rich history.
Annette reports that the shop stood empty for a time before Uhuru moved in. Before that, it was apparently a wool shop. She believes the building was originally a private house.
