Where are these?

Instead of saying where these are, I wondered if anyone could pinpoint these, or work out roughly where I'd been cycling on yesterday's lovely autumn afternoon.

 Location 1: Cycle and Motor Works




 
 Location 2: Plumber, ''...& Hot Water Engineer, Carpenter, Decorating...'' and ''The House Shop and ...''
(all three taken from the same spot)
 Location 3:  ''Sharon''
Location 4: ''John Campion, Merchant Tailor, Hosiery and Boys Outfitter''
                    ''Broadway House, for Clothing Hosiery Hats, Boys Outfitting''

No time to day to write about the different signs, but here are a few answers:
1: Stanstead Road (http://paintedsignsandmosaics.blogspot.com/2010/04/garage-and-more.html)
2: Catford Road, just west of the railway bridges (http://paintedsignsandmosaics.blogspot.com/search/label/Plumber)
4: Rushley Green. Broadway House is opposite the town hall.

So, just location 3 you didn't instantly know, S├ębastien ;-) It's a little further south on the Bromley Road, just where the Old Bromley Road forks off. I've got a couple more (Peckham, Brixton, Camberwell) so I'll upload them once I notice a sign I didn't know about. Or I'll put the Stepney Green ''Daren'' up because a) it's so well preserved; and b) I managed to delete the last photo I took of it before I could upload it.
