Brent Cross, Europe’s first enclosed shopping centre, has reached a significant milestone this month as it celebrates its 40th birthday.

Its launch, on March 2 1976, changed the face of retail in London, bringing the American shopping mall concept to the UK.

While a number of retailers, including all three of is department stores Fenwick, John Lewis and Marks & Spencer have remained a constant over the years, plenty other things have changed.
