Nice pics. Remind me where Selectadisc was Kev, was it a little further down towards Broadmarsh?

You confirmed what I was thinking earlier Kev.

Before the Fountain was closed it was a fairly recent building.

Stu, wrong direction! I'm pretty certain you can see Selectadisc on the top photo, it's the one next to The Fountain (with all the stuff in the window)

Cheers! Had thought maybe so but the signage looked otherwise. Could have been when Selectadisc was at another premises maybe?

My brother worked at NAAFI too, some time in the 60's (Bottle Lane, I think, although I was only a child at the time, so not too sure)
