Jack specialised in Classical Instruments., and when Rock Music amplification systems came in, he refused to stock the equipment, letting Fox Instruments to gain ground; and conversely for Brentnall’s to wane.....
Jacks shop in Nottingham opened initially in the 1940s ​Previous years in Nottingham, the shop which sold records aswell as instruments was located in Central City Street.

I do t think the County Hotel was empty in 1968 as I remember going in there and I only moved to Mottingham in 1969. I also recall Jack Brentnall’s music shop just up the road.
