Harvey Records - Green Street
Bought a Tamla Motown LP yesterday and on the back is a sticker for:

Harvey Records
276 Green Street
Forest Gate E.7
Telephone: GRAngewood 1678

Anyone remember this shop or know anything about it's history and when it closed etc...?

Remember it very well, run by a youngish Jewish lad iirc. Quite a small shop, roughly opposite the Carlton. A couple of sound booths on the right as you entered, spent many happy hours in there in my youth. No idea when it closed.

I don't remember that, it was a record shop unless I am getting confused and there was another record shop that side of the road in Green Street

Would have been in the 70s when I was in there

Well this LP i bought was 1965 and the advert on the link below shows reggae stuff from the rocksteady era, 67-70. The bag on the page mentions it as an electrical store too so it was probably a big shop selling TVs, Stereos and records and so on.

GRAngewood was also a local telephone exchange. These were the days when you might have a shared telephone line!

I’m pretty sure that it was there in the late 1950’s, when my mum took me in there as a child. I also bought a few LP’s (33RPM) from it in the 1960’s.

It is Nirala Sweets at 276 Green Street now. A bakery. With only 3 star rating on Google.

Thanks Stoat. Interesting advert for Island Records on that page. I notice the Diskery in Birmingham is listed on the ad too. That shop is still there.

It's either a kebab shop or sari shop now
