Does anyone remember Normans, the music shop just as you turn into Village Way from Beckenham High Street? I've looked on Google Maps but can't quite work out which premises it occupied; at the time it seemed to be quite a long shop so could have occupied two of the present day shops. It's interesting to see everyone remembers Robertsons, but no one seems to have made any reference to Normans. They too, used to sell guitars, amplifiers, keyboards etc, along with all the usual sheet music etc. Thanks, Pete
I remember Normans, it was on the V when you walked up the High Street on the right. I remember a great Live Dead promotion in the window and starring at the Jaws Harps on late night walks home from the Three Tons.
That's strange Nigel, I wonder if that's where the shop was before I knew it? The years I used to go in there were between 1966-68. I too can remember the Jaws Harps in the window, and wondering what on earth they were!
