    Patrick Street last weekend. I think it's an Argus catalogue he's reading.
    No, it's an Argos catalogue!

      Nice urban details there. I wish I could do the same here :)

      By the way, what's an Argus catalogue?

      Oops, that's Argos! It's a shop where everything is stored in a warehouse behind the counter. You look through a catalogue, and write the code for your purchases on a piece of paper. When you pay for them, you wait until your number is called and receive your goods from the warehouse.
      They have *loads* of stuff and would be regarded as good value but I find them mostly to be the same as everywhere else. Very hard to beat the range of goods each shop stocks!

      An alien anthropologist could probably learn more about contemporary Westerm culture from the Argos catalog than from a university library.
