Harrods began in London's East End at the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign. In 1835, Charles Henry Harrod, a tea merchant and grocery wholesaler, started his own shop opposite of his home in Stepney. Harrod was worried by a cholera epidemic sweeping London and he knew a businessman who wanted to get out of a lease on a grocery shop in Knightsbridge. The shop was moved in 1849 to what was then semi-rural Brompton Road.
As Knightsbridge grew Harrods grew with it and several adjoining buildings were taken over by the store.
