Very interesting picture MR. The modern town centre has me thoroughly confused. So by my calculation, ruins of the bridge is the Ram Bridge? So the hard surface coming in from the left in the foreground heading all the way to the right with the black car and also the road with the 2 cars on the right is West Orchard? The road left to right is Smithford Street? and this would be the Lower Precinct? It's hard to tell if those are the remains of the Co-op building or foundations for the next stage of the Precinct.

Where the lorry is in front of the vehicle crane would be about where the 'Round Cafe' was built. The foundations for Wade's Furniture Store look in place to the left as would the foundations for the Mecca, (Locarno) behind the photographer at that time.

Dreamtime, I had to look up what True Form was. I thought it was some kind of architectural term. LOL. At first I only noticed Woolworths and didn't see the shop at the bottom.

True Form was one of many nice shoe shops in the 1960’s Helen. Stiletto era.

Don't forget 'Elizabeth the Chef' cake shop next door nearly to Woolies at the start of the Lower Precinct upstairs which is in view or the 'Pancake Parlour' on the upper floor on the other side above 'Gibberds' and 'Fennell’s' which is the side the photo was taken. Talking of shoe shops, what about 'Manfield's which had been in Broadgate since before the war and again after it was rebuilt at least until the mid 1970's.
