Well blow me. Thanks to Malvern Carvell on FB. I'm amazed they did it that way!

Yes, I was also completely wrong. I did realise the north side was completed later. I would have walked down there too. I'm beginning to think I was wrong on the round cafe too, but it also seems to prove safety wasn't considered with barriers to fence things off.

This picture from May 1959 does suggest there was corrugated iron round the circular cafe but none of the other pictures show it so perhaps it was just to hide it until it was nearly finished.
