Artefact

Photograph
Record Shack
2007
While I’m on record shop business, not sure if this is already up on the site or whether this shop is still there, but I took this pic round 2007 when I first got a digital camera. I know nothing about the shop and I don’t recall seeing it open, so as a non story I'm off to a good start.I presume it would have been dealing in music of the reggae/ soul variety. It always kind of intrigued me….
Spent about an hour sifting through the picture storage drive bit trying to find it so I hope it brings a fond memory or two to anyone who recalls it…

Featured in the following MDMArchive online exhibitions:

hmm. curious..... Therein could lie a tale. In its day it must have been a community hub. Wonder if there's any lost classics or hidden gems left behind those doors........?
