914 – Stokes Road

Stokes Road would appear to be a bit of an oddity. There are some shops which cause me to wonder how they survive. But, they make for a fascinating hours window shopping.

There’s the shop which has a 28 inch television in a globe case, I’m not sure if that isn’t from the 1970’s along with a smaller portable TV and a video camera that I think may take vhs tapes.

On the other side of the road is the model shop. There used to be two model shops on Stokes Road, this one has a dingy dusty appearance to it, and the models have that look about them the if Toy Story were true, they would be saying “please rescue us” but the look is deceiving, for inside is a veritable cornucopia that would satisfy almost any modellers curiosity. Sadly the other model shop closed down a few years ago.

There’s an art gallery that used to be a shop, not big, but they often have some interesting exhibitions of, quite often local work. I always make a point of pausing to have a look to see what is on display.

The emporium is fascinating, a really diverse collection of “stuff” it is always worth a look you will never know what you might find. Then there is Richard Martins gallery, I have bought several books about Gosport from there.

I usually make a point of pausing to read the sign outside one particular hairdresser. They often have a funny quote that causes a chuckle.

Stokes Road is an unusual collection of stores. Well worth a browse when you have the chance. I have but no means mentioned all of the interesting shops here.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
