There are some half decent aerial photos from the back and side and one fuzzy image from the front in Britain From Above (down until June, sorry). I think that there was a Bunney picture of it in the book of his paintings - I don't know where my copy is at the moment or I'd check. It seems odd that there's no photo of it but I can't recall seeing one. But yes, it did have barley twist door posts. Bunney probably even did a close up as I know he captured several others of interest.

Great picture Dutchman and there is a back view of Lynes store, if only we could see the front of it!

I finally got round to digging out the book and yes, Bunney did paint a picture of the building and a close up of the door. Copies of the book pop up fairly regularly at a wide range of prices so shop around.

I think this has been on before but could not locate on the forum - demolition of Well Street looking from Corporation Street where the Telegraph offices would go up over to the junction with Bond Street.

I think that Wycombe Hall is the building in the top left quadrant with BIBLE written on the side.
