84 Charing Cross Road

In 1949 Helene Hanff, in search of obscure classics and British literature titles she has been unable to find in New York City, notices an ad placed by antiquarian booksellers Marks & Co located at the titular address in London in the Saturday Review of Literature. She contacts the shop and manager Frank Doel fulfills her requests. A long distance friendship evolves over time including birthday gifts, holiday packages, and food parcels to compensate for post-World War II food shortages in England.
