I worked at Birkheads in Church street around 1967/8 in the TV department. Great old fashioned store that used to deal with the stars from St George's Hills. They would close the store and open in the evening just for The Beatles or Tom Jones. Amazing days. I remember Linda (I think) who ran the record department and Mr Connell the manager who was a great character. We sold the early colour TV's for the time around £300 (a lot of money) and sold Dynatron radiograms - the must have item back then along with a Hacker or Roberts radio.

I found this address in the 'Surrey Advertiser' dated 8th November 1968: “W. E. Birkhead & Son Ltd., 24 Church Street, Walton-on-Thames.”
