Ha! Thanks to your piece here, a memory or two stirred.
Way back when, I regularly travelled across from Sarf Lunnon to Holloway Road in North London to work my way through the shelves of (as I knew it) ‘Beaumont Aviation‘, The Aviation Bookshop. I spent many a happy hour browsing and spending there more than I could afford. It had so much stuff there, old and new, and almost always I could find what I wanted.
I haven’t been there in 20 years, but when I knew it, it had survived receivership on at least one occasion. I thought that it had closed down but your piece made me google it, and lo!
I can’t tell you how pleased I was to see that it’s still going, albeit in Tunbridge Wells. Next time I’ve a day off I might just pay a visit.
Thanks for that,
