“Seeing these photo's brings back memories of the City Centre when I was a child, I had no idea what vandalism had been done to our City Centre until now, it looked so much better then than now, whoever gave us the modern mess look we have now should have been shot, we don't one building left with any character, they all look like modern drab.”
