Russell and Russell's furniture and piano store occupied what are now two separate premises, 2 and 2A Kirkgate. Advertising itself as a 'Stroll Round Store for your inspection', its eight departments offered furniture of all kinds, including pianos and mangles; some of the latter are on display in the recessed entrance. Utility Furniture, advertised in the window displays, was introduced to save timber in the early 1940s, and was originally restricted to newly-weds and people who had been bombed out. Advertised as 'released to all', this suggests a date of 1949 for the photographs, when restrictions of Utility Furniture were lifted.
