On 7th April 1909 Alf Robinson advertised his new Hardy Street bookshop in the Nelson Evening Mail.
89 years later, in 1998, two Nelson bookshops, Pages from Hardy Street with Peter and Ann Rigg and Blackmores on Upper Trafalgar Street with Tim and Susi Blackmore, merged to form Page & Blackmore at the current site.
