Trying to work out if that is the B & C Co-Op window, YEB or Rackham's (Walsh's)! Personally I'd go for B & C.

Is that the fish tank at the far end?

No not the fish tank, I would say it's the way up to Angel Street, but could be wrong?

Did you ever wonder what it was like behind the fish tank, seeing all the pumps etc, well here's a few photographs showing the keeper Mr Ken Cornthwaite and son about to empty the tank for the very last time before the hole in the road closed.

It looks to me like the exit on to Arundel gate. Possibly it's Bunker & Pratley's window with the sale, though I could be wrong in this. Following the exit shows the dog-leg which can be seen in the buildings at 22 seconds into the film.
