Hello fellow Sheffielders. I wondered whether anyone has any pictures of Just Micro, the computer game shop that used to be on Carver Street. There is an old black and white image that featured in a Crash magazine, and I have a colour image from a Gremlin Graphics brochure - but hoped someone may have taken more either inside or out.

Here is a link to a print of the colour photo I have: https://www.teepublic.com/poster-and-art/1012552-just-micro-print

Dont have any photos - sorry, but I spent many hours in Just Micro, trying to decide which game on a tape for my Vic 20 or BBC Micro to buy !!

 

Did you find any more pictures?

 

Thanks for the memory

This Peter Harrap interview was filmed inside Just Micro in its heyday. The Bigfoot poster in the background dates it to around 1988.

The Bedroom to Billions documentary also contains more of this interview but doesn't show much more of Just Micro.

About 10 years ago I did find the original interview in full, which showed more viewpoints of Just Micro, but I can no longer find the full length video on the internet so I think that it may be lost in time.

As a early teen I spent an afternoon play testing a game upstairs in Gremlin, MASK was the game.

 

I was asked as I was a regular in the shop.

 

Good times!
