F Weatherhead paper bag

I came across this brown paper bag today while photographing a house that had just been purchased for a major modernisation. It will be a before and after series of photographs.


The bag brought back memories of what used to be a very well known Aylesbury bookshop. It had been located in Kingsbury Square ever since I can remember. I used to buy paperbacks from their outside display, then school and college course books. Later over the years I purchased many new and used books from their amazing shop. I only wish I'd photographed the shop before it disappeared.


Using Google I couldn't trace any reference as to when the shop closed, but Companies House showed F Weatherhead & Son Ltd was dissolved 10/3/98.
