Corporation celebrated it's Centenary in 1996 and as part of the
celebration of this event they refurbished the Town Hall. This
view is looking down the side of the Town Hall towards Barrack
Street. The area is famous for places such as "Little Hell", "The
Adelphi Hotel" and "Hanover Street School".
the rear of the Town Hall was the old Fire Staion, seen on the
left. Opposite was the "Albion" now the "Rovers Return" and at
the bottom the "Wheatsheaf" now the "Corner House".
at the Sea Terminal these stantions are being built to support
the new overhead covered walkway linking the Victoria Pier and
the Edward Pier.
the new tubespan we can look back at the Sea Terminal (The Crows
Nest or The Lemon Squeezer) that now houses Government Departments
of "Tourism" and "Highways Ports and Properties". Opposite used
to be the Peveril Hotel but is now an office block called Peveril
Buildings. Ah! the times they are a changin'.
