Brockley Rise newsagent Fosters has been celebrated in a dedicated book of photography by local designer Son' Emirali.
Nice to see a picture of honest fare.
Thanks for posting and for all the comments - much appreciated.Be sure to see more of the book at www.sonemirali.com/fosters
ah right, it's from a book?
why no photo of Top Chef?
What a great-looking shop!It makes me think of shops when I was a kid. Sweet and salty bounty!Space Raiders anyone? Only 5p!
Good to see they're stocking a few of BDS' favourite publications. Top left hand shelf.
I guess the appearance of many of these newsagents/tobacconists may change considerably in the future.Cigarette packets will become plain, with a diseased organ of the month as their only display.News papers and magazines will diminish as they become displaced by online versions.Snap shots like this are great, they capture a moment in time of social history. Full visual clues in a shop that sells products aimed mainly at instant gratification: Fizzy Sugary drinks, Sweets, Snacks, Baccy, News, Spirits.It is a wonder we survive beyond forty with the range of mortality reducing temptations available.
My god. I haven't seen the interior of Fosters since I went to Stillness School - thirty years ago. It still looks exactly the same!I think I might pay it a visit again at the weekend. And maybe even give the proprieter the money for the Iceberger I shoplifted when I was nine years old as a dare. I didn't even enjoy it, and have always felt guilty.
This was my childhood sweetshop and it/they still look exactly the same, this really made me smile. I still dream about being in the shop looking at sweets...
Thanks again for all the comments, the book is now available to pre-order on my website here:www.sonemirali.com/fostersGrown up with the shop myself - also went to Stillness school!
