HMV Oxford Street 5

HMV Oxford Street 8

With the news that HMV has gone into administration the redoubtable Retronaut has published a suitably impressive gallery of images of the company’s flagship store in the 1950s. More pics here. I love the strapline on the sign on the first image: “Home entertainment and electric housekeeping”.

David Hepworth sees this news as tremendously significant for music: “Put it this way. This time next year people may have stopped saying “have you heard the new album by…..””

  5. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, but I
    by no means found any interesting article like
    yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my
    view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  15. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  18. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more about this subject matter, it might not
    be a taboo matter but generally people do not speak about such topics.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

  32. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of
    hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions
    to prevent hackers?
