Looking into the future

The third generation owning the shop - Staffords Gallery of yesterday - and almost certainly the last. He was telling me that the owners of the land, a housing trust, have been more than doubling the rents asked of the small shops at review. As a result, one by one they are all packing their bags - like "Murder One" and around half a dozen others in the last few years. He expects his demand to arrive in the next year, and that'll be it. Reckons they're going to make the block into a chinese superstore. Just what we need.

Oh, and I've photoshopped Marilyn here
