    good, just don't expect me to go and take the new pics . Would be a shame to miss out on ur old pics and I'm sure one of our brilliant roving photographers will take the pics if possible

    Interesting that they removed an entire floor (or two) off the building on the right, but everything else is essentially the same...

    They should rebuild the top two floors without the tall chimney stacks - well at least a similar looking façade. That would look good.

    Half of em are still there, boxed in by the new signs. I think its down to laziness these days ie the shopowners can't be arsed pulling em out,they did two things saved joe public getting drenched and kept the sun out of the window displays.
