Anthony C. Hall, Bookseller, Twickenham

I’ve known Tony since I was a kid, spent hours in his bookshop picking up Thelwell cartoons and old pulp fiction. He is a proper book dealer, specializing in Russian History and Culture, amongst other subjects, but as he once said to me, he has the luxury of having a bookshop as his office. This picture was made around 1993/4 looking into his office. I keep meaning to drop him a note.

He’s not open much anymore, but you can hopefully catch him sometime at 30 Staines Road, Twickenham TW2 5AH. He might be the last of the absolutely independent bookshops in London.
