A very fine emporium indeed. He sold me my James Avocet one of my James Mk iVs a Match Aerial and an Allcocks Popular among other items all of which I still have and use. It was a sad day when he closed.

Forgive me gentlemen, but I was in Bewdley in June 2016 and the premises shown in the photograph look suspiciously like what is now an ice cream parlour. The times they are a'changing. Mines a 99 with sprinkles!!
