This grand old shop has closed down. It was some weeks ago, apparently, but I hadn't been in the area. Many's the time I stood gaping at their window displays of strange, sometimes rather macabre contraptions and artefacts (leather cases full of glass, eyes, etc.). I never did go inside, as the door was always locked pour decourager us impecunious gawkers.
New Row used to be such a characterful, obscure little street, with the shambolic, old-fashioned stationers,the kindly old watch-repair man, etc. Anyone remember the costumiers', with the giant papier-mache heads from ancient pantos grinning creepily in the window? Sigh...
