A large black and white picture sits in the patio area of the newly renovated World Wide Stereo in Montgomeryville, PA. The picture was hardly noticeable amidst the celebratory set up of last Thursday night’s VIP event for the new renovation, but those who happened to notice it would certainly be able to recognize the faces.
Dressed in his 70’s finest, founder Bob Cole, stands with his arm around his wife Karen. They, along with fellow original Ron Rumer, stand frozen in time at the store’s Grand Opening in the fall of 1978.
The picture is inarguably nostalgic, which is why it is perhaps a little disconcerting to see the exact same faces wandering around the store’s 2016 Grand Reopening.
