I found this listing in 'The Tatler' dated 12th February 1966:

“Rare old gramophone records can be picked up at junk shops and charity bazaars if you are lucky, but there are one or two shops in London who specialise exclusively in collecting earliest recordings made on 78 discs. Rust's Rare Records, 38 Grimsdyke Road, Hatch End, Middlesex (Hatch End 4452), is owned byMr. Brian Rust, who has been in this business for over 30 years and has built up a collection of tens of thousands.” Dave (2023)

I found this listing in 'The Tatler' dated 20th August 1966: “Rust's Rare Records, 38 Grimsdyke Road, Hatch End, Middlesex (HAT 4452), owned by Mr Brian Rust, is the place to try if you want a real collectors' item. Mr. Rust has been building up his colleciion of records over the last 30 years, and he has some really valuable rarities which are not for sale but which he can re-record if the copyright has run out. He has had for sale such collectors' items as original recordings made by Ellen Terry, Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree, the first Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire recordings (the first Crosby records sell for about £5), and Jessie Matthews as a teenager.”
