Photographer's Note

I love to see old signs such as this which give us a clue to some of the history of a place.

Researching on the internet I discovered that "Hart's Books were founded in 1836 by Henry Hart, W. Hart and Son Ltd. started life as Saffron Walden's finest printers and the original printing press can still be seen today at Saffron Walden Museum.

Over the years the company grew to become the town's favourite retailer of stationary, musical instruments and books.

For over 175 years Hart's has been Saffron Walden's independent book seller of choice, occupying shops in the centre of town."
(Hart's Book Shop)

I found a picture of their present premises, and it is immediately to the left of this passageway.
It is great to know that they are still in business!

Thanks for looking.
