Looking Back: ‘Heyday of John Lewis’
The sad news that John Lewis is to shut its Queensgate store, after almost four decades as the city’s go-to retail outlet, prompted photographer Chris Porsz to get out this week’s pictures
The first picture shows a busy shopping centre in the early 1980s with John Lewis on the right.
The next picture was taken in Westgate showing John Lewis staff streaming out after a bomb scare in 1983.
The third picture, Chris asks: “Who were the lads outside the shop?”
