Do you remember . . .?
Left: Busy Bees fire. 17th June 1983. I can't believe that's 27 years ago.

Left: The old bus station on Promenade, demolished to make way for the Promenades Shopping Centre.

Right top: In what was Princess Street.

Right bottom: Promenade and the site of access to the centre.

Bottom right: The Quay Road railway level crossing is demolished.

Left: Allens store (the large white building) on Promenade. This was October 1988. The site is now a Weatherspoons pub, while the building alongside is a shop full of inexpensive items.
