Fullerscopes Finchley Road

I need a picture of the splendid round-window frontage of the Fullerscopes shop when it was located on the Finchley Road in Temple Fortune. This is to illustrate a talk I am giving on the night-side imaging of Venus at 1000nm next Tuesday on Dave Eagle's Virtual Astronomy webinars. I have a very small scanned image from the back of a catalogue from 1973 (above), but would love a higher resolution one if there is anyone out there who has such a picture.

Thanks

Martin

Don't try contacting that website!

Don't try contacting the first website that Daryl quotes. People who have been involved with BAA for a while will know why.

Yes, sage advice David - alarm bells were ringing in my ears as I read it. Didn't want to end up in the small claim court myself!

Thanks Daryl,

I remember reading that saga before in your first link.

I did find the picture in the bottom link which is very good but really wanted the later frontage with the round window I used to stare through!

Thanks for your help anyway,

Best wishes

Martin
