Photo of a box of 78s taken by Eddy Rhead. Many 78s during this period had adverts for the shops that were selling them on the sleeve.
I would be very interested to hear from anyone who remembers Hime & Addison on John Dalton Street (est 1815). The year is a guess

The earliest address I could find was in the ‘Manchester Times’ dated 2nd December 1848: “HIME & ADDISON (late Hime, Beale & Co.), 19, ST. ANN'S SQUARE, MANCHESTER.”
... and then this address in the ‘Manchester Courier’ dated 5th January 1904: “HIME & ADDISON, 30, VICTORIA STREET, MANCHESTER (Est. 1815).”
... and this announcement in the ‘Northern Daily Telegraph’ dated 6th August 1909: “HIME & ADDISON, MUSIC AND MUSICAL INSTRUMENT DEALERS, begs to announce that they have REMOVED from 30 and 32, VICTORIA STREET, To Larger and More Convenient Premises, CENTURY BUILDINGS, 195 and 196. DEANSGATE, MANCHESTER (Opposite Inland Revenue Offices).”
... and then this address in the ‘Manchester Evening News’ dated 4th December 1935: “HIME & ADDISON - NEW ADDRESS: 37 JOHN DALTON ST., MANCHESTER.”
