A solid building designed with some flair - like many others of the period - some gone forever! I have noticed that some new buildings are being designed in a similar vein - but far flimsier.

The shop that is visible at the left of the pic was my grandma's shop where she made pies and sold general groceries. We used to watch the dray men lowering wooden barrels into the cellar down what looked like a ladder with bent rungs. You could smell the odour of stale beer as they did it.On the other side of grandma's shop was a cobbler's shop and Standwear shirt factory further down Hallgate Thanks for the memories that the pic brings back!

Fred that's really lucky that you have spotted your grandma's shop. I am always on the lookout for the street I lived in but have only seen the end of it!
