Alan Esdaile… This is a shop I ran with Clive and yes we did sell knickers! First time ever I have seen this photo. Anyone remember the shop? What intrigues me is the red poster below the window. This is for The Village Glen Fern Road Bournemouth. Seems very odd to advertise it on the pier unless a local band was on the bill?
Matt Thomas… Still selling knickers as well 🙂
Diane Knight… My dad had a shop on the pier then , you must have been the competition …which side were you on ???
Alan Esdaile… The right hand side Diane. Next to the bookies. What did your dad sell?
Diane Knight… Silly hats and all those necessary things …he also built the model railway on the other side…
Phil Gill… I remember it well.
Nastassja Kaschevsky… Remember it well, when I used to work on the pier. I was working in the Dome on the pier, that summer!
Mick O’Dowd… Yes remember this well Alan. If I remember correctly you specialised in prog rock.
Alan Esdaile… Sold mainly deletions and american overstocks which you could make a bit more money on. The only trouble being the American imports either had a hole punched through them, corner cut or a sticker on the sleeve showing that the import duty had been paid.
Leigh Wieland-Boys… Still have a Yes LP Steve Demetris bought for me on one of our visits to the shop
