    Sorry Pablo, can't help you there.

    Except to say it made way for the Nautical Training College when it moved from Oldham Street (Dickie Bond's catering college).

    But I don't when it was actually demolished. But I'll make inquiries.

    I'm trying to find photos to add to the family history we're doing for my husbands' Aunt Connies 88th birthday. Her grandfather was a manager at MacSymons Store, eventually in the Export Department. I see that you mention a photo which includes the store, but I don't know what I'm doing with this web site, so is there any way I can have a look at it without breaking the rules or incurring a huge fee?! If possible easy, idiot proof instructions please Thanks Helen Stanley

    I noticed a postcard for sale, a couple of years ago, Macsymons Buildings, next to the Sailors Home (another building in Church Street is advertised in one of the windows as 'Sale Rooms')



    The building shown is mentioned in the National Archives, concerning bomb damage:
    "Canning Place: correspondence, papers and drawings concerning war damage to premises of MacSymons Stores Ltd. 720KIR/2101 1940-54"

    Great photos, Joe.

    I don't know how I missed this thread.

    Here's the Clarence Dock chimneys, minutes before they were blown up (down?) in 1994.
