A photograph of the exterior of Peckham Gramophone Stores, Peckham High Street, taken by Cardew for the Daily Herald newspaper on 19 August, 1932. A poster hanging above the doorway advertises a chance to win £5000 by buying a Decca F3075 record player. A queue of men and boys stand outside the shop listening to a record put on by the shop manager. In the window to the left of the photograph a large poster promotes band leader Jack Hylton (1892-1965); his cardboard cut-out appears at the head of the queue. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
