(Adams shop from 1865 till about 1900)

In the Mondays @ Six at St Clements programme on October 26, Peter Adams will give an illustrated talk on Adams and Co’s 150 years as Booksellers and Stationers in Durban, entitled, How Things Change!

This concludes the series of talks celebrating the rich cultural tapestry of Durban, which started with Kevan Mardon reminding us of The Golden Years of Broadcasting and Barbara Maude-Stone’s talk with slides of her collection of postcards of Dear Old Durban.

Peter Adams’s family firm - Adams Booksellers - turns 150 this year. He has had much fun researching the history of the firm and the people who have worked in it and says that a much clearer picture of how the business worked has slowly appeared. He entitles his talk which will be illustrated with slides, "Adams 150 years: How things have changed!"  

St Clements is situated at 191 Musgrave Road. Mondays @ Six run between 18h00 and 19h00. Table bookings are essential on 031 202 2511. There is no cover charge but there is a donations box to support presenters.
