Have your say

Last week I mentioned a book written about Woolworth’s by Derek Phillips called The Wonder of Woolies.

Amanda Field from the publishers got in touch to say the book is still available.

It is published by Footplate Publishing, a forerunner of Chaplin Books. It is available direct from chaplinbooks.co.uk or bookshops at £8.99

Many former employees from Portsmouth are mentioned in the book.
