As I remember it, this started out as a flower-shop – am I right? and the little window that is just visible to the left, used to sell ice-creams? At that point I think the Mall was still open to the elements, but I could be wrong…….
The multi-storey didn’t, originally, have any of the canopy or the external lift, and these were added in about 1980.
If anyone can add any more detail, and hopefully, some dates, that would be good!
