So much has been destroyed pre, during and post war, it's always a surprise to find a building in real life. At the early stage of trying to pinpoint locations the developers were knocking old buildings faster than I could register where they were. The Peacock in Gosford Street vanished between Google Street View updates. Though I found that it reappeared for a while if you came out of Far Gosford Street. You can still see the back of it if you come out of the car park entrance next to where it was. That whole area is still pre demolition on Street View. Which is a bit freaky if you didn't know the area.

I see what you mean Helen, I just had a lovely nostalgic (virtual) wander around the back of the Peacock Big grin

Bit late to the party but I recognised that straight away as near to me - didn't the building on the left latterly become (further down) part of the Technical College annexe? Thanks to Dean Nelson for this one.

Neil. You posted that image in the Technical College thread (post #50), and there was quite a lot of discussion about the building Wink

The building on the right is what remained of Argyle House. The bays have gone and the door is different but there are some similarities to tie the two together.

Ah Winfray, I wasn’t in there much during my tech time, mainly exams. Friends who were in there a lot said it was very handy for a swift pint in the Hen and Chicks between lessons.
