The building on the site before Paramount Court was Tottenham House, occupied by Shoolbred's department store. James Shoolbred and Company started as a draper's at 155 Tottenham Court Road in the 1820s and gradually expanded. In the 1870s the store began designing, manufacturing and selling high-quality furniture. The company ceased trading in 1931.

In the distance you can see the old block on the TCR site before it was knocked down and Paramount Court was built. It has a large white frontage and canopies at street level.
