Places Where I’ve Been – Berwick Street, Soho

Nestled among the lurid sex shops and fine eateries of Soho lies Berwick Street – a veritable oasis (no pun intended) of world-class record shops that most music fans would die for.

Berwick Street will be instantly recogniseable to many fans of a certain Manchester band who conquered the world for a brief moment in the 90s.

Yes, this is where the album cover photograph for (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? was taken – a simple but nontheless striking shot that would line the bedroom walls of countless teenagers during the heady days of Britpop.

Though many of the record shops are no more, Berwick Street is a very interesting places to visit, now immortalised forever as part of music history.
