There was also Tony's Video Store in the Black Prince Avenue shops (the last one going from town) and somewhere on Foleshill Road was a car spares shop (Abbey Tyres?) that specialised in Betamax tapes in the early eighties.

'The Video cabin' on Grayswood Av. first shop for me. But also recall a lot of petrol stations doing them over time. The petrol station on Broad lane near to the Hawthorn pub did more video rentals than sell petrol I think. Happy days. Big grin
Always looking forward to looking at the past.

Yes I used the one on Grayswood Ave and remember it well. A girl I was at St Christophers with lived in the Butchers next door. When it comes to VHS - my two 'favourite' recollections were having to take a break for fresh air whilst watching The Evil Dead from behind the settee at my mates house during the classic Video Nasty era - and the first Top-loader I'd ever seen at Peugeot-Talbot on Torrington Ave when someone left a somewhat 'dodgy' copy of a rather X rated film in the works Top-loader in the education office!
