The ones in the foreground were taken down and rebuilt near St John's in their medieval appearance. Edited by member, 22nd Nov 2019 2:36 pm

It's not obvious that they're the same. What I've wondered was when the mods happened to fill in the jetties to give the appearance they had before the war. The building that would have been in the foreground in your photo if it hadn't been destroyed by bombing was much more in the medieval style. Ironically the city survived so long intact because it had been largely built in the medieval era, with big timbers and then had remained because the city was too poor to modernise. That was especially true of Spon Street.
