It helps us to work out whether the photos are right for our group if you add a bit of a description - if it's a longstanding business etc. Please don't forget to tell us where all your Still Open places are, so that we can go and visit them too!

This group is for pictures of old-timey shops which are still going strong, despite their anachronistic appearance in their neighbourhood. Characterful, longstanding businesses that have been doing things more or less the same way for decades, but are now disappearing from our high streets. This is a record of the survivors.
It was inspired by the book, Still Open, and although that book is about shops and cafes in London, we also like to see pictures of the same sort of stuff from around the world.
Shops or venues with nice old exteriors but new businesses operating inside do not belong here. Sorry. Maybe the putting up a front, London style or Shop Fronts groups are for you.
Lovely authentic old pubs, cafes and restaurants are welcome in this group, but only if they have escaped modern refurbishment and retain a back-in-time atmosphere.
Good examples of what we are looking for:
- This group will count toward the photo's limit (60 for Pro members, 30 for free members)
- Accepted content types: Photos, Videos, Images, Art, Screenshots
- Accepted safety levels: Safe
