A. Cooper & Sons of 340 High Street Chatham were accedited dealers for HMV (His Master's Voice) Radios, Gramophones and Records and an appointed dealer for Marconi Radio receivers. 

I scanned this from a 78rpm record I bought in a charity shop today.

i always have a memory of that shop, me aged about 10, standing at the Regent bus stop on a wet winter evening, looking over at Cooper's all lit up, you could always hear the music, customers having  demo's i guess  :) erfman

I remember it back in the 50s, about 2 shops away from the Little Crown, bought my first 45 there when they took over from 78s.

I remember the shop in the early 70's but only just! Very traditional even then...
Other record shops in Chatham thatIi can recall were Impact, Disco2+2, K2 and Star Track Recordings....)
