The King's Speech - Take 1

That intrepid historian Colin Aitchison sent me this interesting piece of memorabilia from 1939 - yes Windows has been around for a long time. When this leaflet was printed they'd already been in the game for 31 years and have now clocked up 104 years. There can't be many other Newcastle stores - Fenwick's (1884) is one - that have been on the same site for so long.
