Another month gone, another batch of photos uploaded. May turned out to be a month of transition and change. The lockdown largely ended and shops and restaurants opened up. I got new trainers. The weather belatedly turned from cold and miserable to warm and sunny. And Debenhams around the country closed their doors for the final time after 230 years of trading.
The Bournemouth branch of Debenhams opened in 1972, the year I was born. I’ll add that to the growing list of things and people that I’ve outlived. I long ago outlasted the likes of Jesus and John Lennon. By the time I hit fifty in October, I’ll be able to add the likes of Whitney Houston, Al Capone and Alvaro Obregon to the collection.
