Fat Larry's as was

Fat Larry's if I remember right sold second hand CDs and that sort of stuff a few years back. This corner block including the shop next door was known as Pools Corner selling anything second hand, TVs, bikes, furniture and lots of  fishing gear as I recall. They ran a cheque cashing scheme as well. I may have bought a TV from there many, many years back (I've checked with Margot and yes we did, says herself, it was the one that went pink! Hmm.). Well Fat Larry is long gone and Pools Corner is now Ella Street Social Club.


  1. We still have the odd second hand music shop here, but they've become quite rare.

  2. We've got a good one in Pasadena—still sells vinyl. I wonder how long it will last.

    This looks like an interesting corner. I've always wondered what it would be like to live upstairs from a shop, especially if that shop were mine.
