After opening at 6-7 Hampstead High Street in 1957, the High Hill Bookshop quickly became popular with the local community and was considered a Hampstead institution by many. It was well known for its quirky selection of books and popular events and, perhaps especially, its dedication to Hampstead and the surrounding area. The shop was also the base for the High Hill Press, which published local history books. The owner, Ian Norrie, was known for his sense of humour, as proven by these posters which poke fun at the shop's clientele. The High Hill Bookshop closed down in 1988.
