Actually that's a good point Prof - it looks a little too far north and east to have been taken from Owens? But not sure how else anyone could have got that angle? Bit early for a drone! Edited by member, 14th Nov 2018 8:36 pm

Does anyone know the date the Timothy Whites/Flying Standard Mock Tudor building opened?

I've seen a photograph of it in the process of being built, taken in 1938, so possibly it opened within a year or so of that. It's quite surprising when you first see the photo, because despite its old style design, it was built around a steel girder framework!

pixrobin. But wasn't the part built in Trinity Street a continuation of the black and white building in Priory Row?

The building in Priory Row was the remainder of three old buildings that were demolished, partly to make way for Trinity Street and partly to blend nicely with the old building. There was a complimentary building erected on the corner of Broadgate although it didn't survive the war. The two mock Tudor buildings would have framed Holy Trinity, opened up to make a view by demolishing the top of the Great Butchery.

Some excellent (though sad) clearance images to build Trinity Street - courtesy of those Telegraph paper supplements

The Trinity Street opening in 1937 but look at what was left (though not for long!) behind in the old Spicerstoke area Sad Nicely brought to colourised life by Tony Lay on FB. Edited by member, 10th Dec 2020 5:02 pm

About 1835 Caldicot opened their silk ribbon factory, near Becks. He wasn't an easy master, he would rarely sign the lists. His factory was quite large as you can see in the photo post 125. When it closed I'm not sure, but it had been empty and derelict for an awful long time, and everyone was more than pleased to see it go.
