2017: Truck music store & Mostro in-house coffee shop
2006: Videosyncratic video shop frontage

2011 - present

This is the Truck Store music shop, incorporating Mostro Coffee shop [1].

2012 - 2015

Until the in-house Mostro Coffeetook over in 2015, the coffee shop inside was franchised to the Keen Bean Coffee Club [2]. The Keen Bean crew then moved out to open their own cafe, The Bear & The Bean, at number 98.

2002 - 2010

This was a branch of Videosyncratic video rental shop, which also had a branch in Jericho. The Cowley Road branch first appeared in Thomsons Directory in 2005. This branch was run by Jon Spira, who in 2017 published a book about his time running the Cowley Road shop. [3]
