Swindon Bookshop on Lock Road [c.1973-2020]

Date Place completed: 
c.1973-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)
Date Place demolished: 
2020-07-31

Located at 13-15 Lock Road, TST in Anson House (date of first occupation 09/12/1963).

It's unclear when Swindon opened this store, it's visible on a photo attributed to 1973. So they probably had two stores, one on Nathan Road, and the other on Lock Road.

Update: the shop closed 31 July, 2020.

Swindon bookstore operates online only.

1967 TST Nathan Rd

Reading from the street sign, this should be the junction of Middle and Nathan Roads. Swindon book shop is on the right. It seems to be very close, for me it should a a few blocks further north. The Swindon sign looks a bit different to the one from 1966: same outline, but different colour.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1980
Places shown in this photo: 

View along Nathan Road in August 1980. I do not remember the exact location, most likely somewhere between Haiphong and Mody Road looking in southerly direction. About 10m from the photographer is a pedrestrian subway - maybe this helps for finding correct location.

Places shown in this photo: 

View along Nathan Road in August 1980. I do not remember the exact location, quite near to the other 1980's image, but now looking in northerly direction. The "Parker" sign is on both images.
