A colourful Eton character!

August 1, 2018

This obituary for Christopher Gibbs appeared recently in the Times and refers to his short time at Eton College and to Ma Brown’s which was at 87 High Street, Eton. Some 50 years ago, the bookshop moved to 88 High Street where it continues today as The Eton Antiquarian Bookshop

 

It would appear that Christopher Gibbs was well known as a Bohemian Socialite, who socialised with the Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithful and was heavily involved in the Swinging 60s scene.

 

A far cry from the expected old Etonian!
