MessageSee < 84 Charing Cross > completely because of a love called Beijing Seattle 2 movie. The movie tells the story of the hero and the heroine because the book met his love story, love is beautiful, the book is also good. So I bought this book, Hanff Frank enthusiasm and honesty touched me, I hope I can have such a friend.
Everything goes well, only forgetting Acacia.

MessageMy Dad Martin Jaye - a booklover - was a regular visitor to the shop and remembers all the staff. In fact, he was friends with Walter Hynes, better known as "Patsy", a survivor from those days. Pat last worked at St Martins Prints in Cecil Court, which is a rather upmarket alleyway which sells antiques. Dad said that Dickens would have written about him and I used to go with him on his trips there. He and Dad used to put me straight about the real shop. Dad, can be seen at the closing credits of the movie 84 Charing Cross Road. He just happened to be standing looking at the books outside the store, when he was captured in a 1968 photo. If you are interested, I have photos of items that Pat signed for me. I used to give them to Dad and he would take them along to Cecil Court from Ilford! There is a copy of the book which Pat wrote in, a napkin from when he took lunch with a Hollywood film director and other items associated with the shop. I have just taken some more photos of my dad posing at the plaque outside #84 (now a Maccie D's). If you are interested, please let me know.

Best regards,

Jemjem

MessageAlthough this book isn't obviously related to love or roamnce,it is qite a nice story. The letters remind me of my pen pals and our letters. It's getting further from us now, both that century and the way people keep in touch with others. Once in a while, I really miss those moments when I got some snail mails in my mailbox. I still enjoy writing letters though. There's an old soul living inside my 17-year-old boday:)

MessageI read Ms hanff's book many years ago and in the early 1980s dropped in to 84 Charing Cross Road. The shop was all about CDs by that time, and the proprietors, a pair of young people, said they had known nothing of their location's bookish history until visitors kept asking where the books had gone. So they had begun keeping a few copies of the book on sale. And they had found in the basement a large MARKS & CO sign, probably the one originally over the entrance, which they had mounted on a wall in the back of the main room.
