I dispute the date given for this picture, because the Noo Market Hall opened in January 1987 and so this picture must have been taken well before the Autumn 1986 date quoted, because the foundations for The Galleries were still being constructed in the photo, so maybe the photo was taken in Autumn 1985 or even before that ...

Building for future generations they said Arthur,when you look at it now what future has it got.

If I'm not mistaken, the foundation stone was laid in 1987 and the Galleries officially opened by Princess Di in the early 90's.
