Past Blast

The demise, in 2011, of the arcane retail experience that was the Aitken Bros Electronics store, located in High Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne is a bit sad. Although it had turned into a disco equipment shop (round about the time that Maplin opened in town?), to see it replaced by yet another here-today gone-tomorrow fashion t-shirt shop is a little depressing. Its passing seems to be relatively unmarked on the tubes. Unable to find a photo, I post some other piece of the past found on a related forum.
