A review of H Gee by Peter Milbank written on Wednesday 9th of July 2014
I wonder if you know Gees?
It's a little emporium dealing in electrical electronic bits and pieces down Mill Road in Cambridge almost opposite the old bath house.
It seems to have been there for ever supplying the needs of the expert the amateur the experimenter the curious.
Generations of schoolgirls schoolboys students inventors of marvellous devices which have spawned the foundations of the hi technologies of today.
I seriously think Gees needs recognition in a big way to their contributions to science and today's modern life.
If you have a story to tell of the genesis of a device created in Cambridge and has gone on into the world starting with bits sourced in Gees please share it.
I invite everyone who has shopped at Gees or asked advice from Gees and had that wonderful experience of asking for a screbulobit of some such device to be presented with a dust filled box from a back room and been given a choice of three different sizes in seven colours both imperial and metric to tell us.
Please add your Gees experience story here and maybe this will grow and a suitable recognition to this Cambridge family institution can be made.
I remember electronics stores like Tandy Maplins Apple stores and the like come and go and despite their huge show rooms and stock have advised me when they get stuck they all say the same Go to Gees.
There is the Queens Award to Industry, The Nobel Prize how many votes would it take to get Gees an award?
