The history of storage units in London
The Harrods Depository on the South Bank of the River Thames, near Hammersmith Bridge in Barnes, was one of the first examples of personal storage units in London. Built between 1894 and 1913, the building was extremely grand given that it simply a space to store large items of furniture before they were sent to customers or to the showrooms of the Harrods department store in Knightsbridge.
However, the building also had enough space to offer personal storage solutions for clients who wanted somewhere to store their belongings while they were abroad. Despite the grand old look of the building, the technology it featured was incredibly modern with reinforced concrete lifts in the Depository and England’s first escalator installed in the Knightsbridge store in 1898.
