I remember the newsagents there on the corner.Look closely and you can see the Embassy cigarette vending machine outside. It was still there in the early eighties, (derelict of course. You wouldn't get those machines today without them being thieved from.

Regarding the cig vending machines, Dave. I took a trip to Germany via my computer(courtesy of Google Maps) and discovered that many places in Germany still have cig vending machines outside some of the shops.
