This fire escape went from the Kitchenware stockroom to the shop floor and had to be kept clear at all times.  There was a time however, when a self assemby whitewood wardrobe was put in front of it (minus the back panel) and several partners decided to go to lunch through the wardrobe much to the surprise of customers!
