A Simpler Time

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Jul 2019

It’s not the most amazing historic photo, but I like it. It makes me feel nostalgic of a time when life was simpler. The photo was taken in the HMV shop at 363 Oxford Street, London, on 24th November 1955.

Customers can be seen enjoying the latest record releases in listening booths. Can you remember going down to your local record shop and listening to the latest releases?
