  • I saw my first drum kit at either Shadbolts or Rumbelows in the High St Stevenage Old Town it was about £35, a fortune then & it would have taken me ages to save up from my paper round money in 1956 to buy it, I stood there looking at it for a few minutes, it was a Broadway Kat Kit in a glitter finish

  • Who remembers Blundels, where Waitrose is now?

  • So where was Rumbelows? From your comments I assume it was opposite where Waitrose is now, approx. ?

  • I worked in this shop training to be a Television Engineer
    when I left school in 1954, until Mr. Rumbelow closed the
    workshop and moved the repairs to the Hatfield branch.
    I then got a job at Murphy Radio Welwyn Garden City.

  • I think you are right – I remember it well

  • I seem to remember that one could walk all the way through this shop from the high street to middle row.  Or is it my imagination?
