Looking like a set out of "2001 A Space Odyssey" and using the Countdown typeface, you might expect this shop to be a hip, ultra modern retail outlet where the young trendy youth hung out, but no, quite the opposite, it was a family friendly place selling a strange mix of toys and rather mundane records.
This is Cathie McCabe's Record Shop at the Arcade in Shore Terrace - picture taken in the early 70's.
The shelving racks were interlocking octagons, a theme that also crops up on their ad, dated 1974 and their carrier bag underneath it.
If you zoom into the photo you'll find a combination of easy listening 8-track cartridges, a few toys scattered around, electrical goods and of course, vinyl records.
Here's the albums I've spotted in the picture -
Klaus Wunderlich - "Around The World".
The Alexander Brothers - "Let's Have A Ceilidh".
Bee Gees - "Best Of".
Various - "Total Sound".
Paul & Linda McCartney - "Ram".
Soundtrack - "Love Story".
And one of those stereo sound samplers called "Impact".
Doesn't really set the pulse racing!
The other item above is from the small ads in the Tele dated January 1972 and you can see for yourself the products they had on offer down at the pod.
In 1974, Cathie McCabe also had shops in Reform Street and Lorne Street Market.
