    Well hold my breath – I think all the buildings in the picture are still standing?

    Alas, no – the two under the DR filters sign sign are gone. I love the double roof line on the Manchester Street building – not to mention the sporty looking A40, complete with white wall tyres!

    And after those two were demolished the site has sat vacant – sometimes with a postered fence – sometimes without – and behind the fence a fantastic selection of street art evolves.
