So far as I can tell, this is the only shop in Plymouth that sells things, particularly books, photographs, drawings, DVDs etc which capture and describe the city and it's history. Small well stocked shop in one of the very few old streets left.

A small but busy and well stocked family enterprise contains more images and source materiel about the present and history of Plymouth than any other shop. Hiding the listing in amongst the things to do/attractions is hiding its usefulness. Recommended. Pleasant little street too.

Small, family run(?), shop selling vast selection of pen drawings of local scenes. Some tinted and some in frames. Also selection of books and DVDs. Great for anyone looking for a simple souvenir or a gift. Just noticed the website too.

Came here while trailing around looking for Christmas presents. Small unassuming front room shop packed with very many prints of pen drawings of local scenes. Also a lot of books on mostly twentieth century Plymouth history. Fascinating and very approachable.

Wide selection of local views, framed or unformed. Didn't feel like a hard sell or a ripoff, almost like they were doing it for love?
