Lower Marsh and The Cut in Waterloo have been shortlisted in the London category of a competition to find Britain's best high streets.
Waterloo's high street is competing against Myddleton Road in Haringey and Romford town centre in the Government-backed Great British High Street competition.
"Seeing how hard our shopkeepers, publicans, restaurateurs and hairdressers work is an inspiration and we are urging everyone to vote for them in support."
Winners in each category will share a prize pot worth £100,000 and receive social media training from Google and Twitter.
Locals are encouraged to vote for their high street at http://thegreatbritishhighstreet.co.uk/finalist-london – voting closes on Sunday 19 November.
