Photo Set: Bop Records


Bop Records was a much-loved record store in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, which was forced out of business due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis. The store and owner (Dave) have decades of history in the city's music scene, the collection was a wonderful huge resource to browsers and listeners, so this was a tragedy on many levels.

As a partial silver lining, the Internet Archive (where I currently work) purchased the entire collection of vinyl and older 78rpm records, to be digitized and made as accessible as possible to the world at I got to visit the store as it was being packed up and take some quick documentary shots, which have also been uploaded to the archive.
