Default Re: End of an era.

Great story. Last year in my home town of Beverley, the oldest shop in town( been there since 1896) Briggs and Powell closed for the last year. We rented our tv’s ( ITTs and Trinitons mostly) from there as a kid. It was a fascinating place as a kid, all the teles and radios, hoovers, washing machines, all repaired on site. I did go back into the shop for the first time in 20 years to savour the distinctive smell of new electronics mixed with old wood and peg boards.

We also had a the Radiofusion shop ( Beverley and Hull’s own cable tv broadcaster ) where I bought my first 7” single ( Sad Cafe no less ) and I believe there was a Granada TV shop too.

Happy days now long since gone.
I'm a Roberts addict !!
