City of Culture

J Scarborough record shop Hull

As it’s Hull’s City of Culture year in 2017, here’s a nice early sleeve from the city’s best known record shop, Sydney Scarborough’s.  There are some later sleeves from this shop (and others in Hull) already on the site, but this one I found recently gives us an opening date for the shop of 1904, and also lists three branches in the town centre, albeit not the later shop under the City Hall.  The sleeve looks to date from the early 1920s and suggests an earlier member of the Scarborough family founded the business.
