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…..”"
