What a wonderful place. I noticed the "HIMSELF" right away, and the unusual Greek-temple-style top to the building. I'm sure John Mills was quite a character.

Used bookstores rule, plain and simple.

How many floors of books? I love bookstores with at least three floors. Something about them...

Ryan - unfortunately, it's only one floor with a bit of a raised extension out the back. bUT IT'S PRETTY DEEP. Upstairs is a Koala Foundation office and something else.

Also, it's actually called the "John Mills Himself Building" - I found a bit of heritage info here:

ooops - hit caps lock unthinkingly. It's not THAT DEEP.

And yes - after the dissolution of a partnership he traded as Himself. That's a bit more prosaic than expected, but oh well..
