  1. It was built as the offices for a printing and stationary company.
  2. Is that now the balti king? ive only ever known it as the balti king if so - what a great picture.
  3. Oh perhaps not then - it was probably a while ago to be honest. im round that way tomorrow so will have a look.
  4. There’s an old one (no longer working) still on the wall outside a shop just before hunters bar roundabout . its silver in colour and says “cigarettes” on it.
  5. It’s still there converted to offices. The frontage still has the carved “new inn” signage in the stonework.
  6. Believe the houses on the right are pretty much as was. The clubs and kfc would now appear on your left.
  7. It’s reopening as the rag n tag!!! great news.
  8. I believe it was so modern / hi-tec when first built it was used as the setting for an advert for a new Ford Motor Car.
  9. These are fantastic I’ve never heard of the fella - they should be published.
  10. I still agree - don’t think it needs 3 separate ones for pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. or 2 for cinema and movies etc.
  11. The lady at the back centre in the top picture is my mother-in-law.
  12. They used to have a spin the wheel game which set the drinks offers for the next 30mins or something like that. the place is still in use as a nightclub called code i think.
  13. I loved Suggs when I was a kid in the 80s. My dad used to take me in and we used to look at the kits and the boots and that. got my first pair of boots in there and my dad bought me some dubbin to go with them!
  14. Wow I never knew that’s what it looked like down there - I assume the roundabout sits on top of where these shops were? What other shops were there - was there a pub?
