Be Kind, Rewind: Blockbuster Video, Dereham Road, Norwich

The long-vacant Blockbuster video store on Dereham Road, Norwich. Video rental stores were pivotal to my soul, growing up: the small, local, independent places were clearly the ones to frequent (in my hometown in Yorkshire, it was a place called KC Video: the horror section felt fabulously shifty, as any self-respecting horror section of a video shop should), but I've got good memories of working my way through the shelves of Blockbuster too. My education in film came from places like this. I miss them.
