Advent Day 20 – Wells music shop bag Late 20th Century

In the run up to Christmas we’ll show some of the objects added to the Museum’s collection in the last 12 months. These objects will be on display at the Museum until we close for Christmas on 16th December.

IMG_1073 (2) Located at 30 The Arcade, South Street, Romford, Wells Music Stores Ltd is another long lost Romford establishment. It was a popular music shop, but the business closed in 1996. The shop was often described on adverts as being alongside the police station, prior to the latter being relocated to Main Road in 1965. This bag is undated but presumably dates from after this time, perhaps from the 1970s or 1980s.
