Not many leaves on that tree for the time of the year, maybe it down to this cold wind we have been having.

We`ll soon be seeing the sandpit for children which is placed there in July and is located in the foreground of this photo!
Unusual view, Brian.

The times I've walked through the arcade!
I remember one Saturday afternoon standing at this entrance with a few mates having our photo taken with a monkey. The photographer wasn't keen when I suggested taking the monkey with us to Blackpool Mecca that night!

If it became necessary for a fire engine to be in that square how would it enter?
Everybody was in Liverpool that day.
Nice unobstructed piccy.

I can remember coming out of that end of the Arcade and seeing Lewis's and Cassinelli's ice-cream vans side by side. I can also recall Grafton House and a very pushy assistant trying to get me to buy a dress.
