London Camera Exchange, Gloucester
London Camera Exchange, Gloucester
The small London Camera Exchange branch on Southgate Street in Gloucester opened in 1973. In a previous life back in the 1970s I worked here for a time, in those days I recall there were eight camera shops in Gloucester. Competitors in those days included Walwyns, further down Southgate Street, and Roger Francis on King's Square, this was of course in the days before Jessops expanded from their roots in Leicester to become a national chain. Yesterday's demise of Jessops means London Camera Exchange is the sole survivor in this city!

(Some months later, Jessops did re-open in Gloucester. Added 29 March 2014)
