Mesnes Street before Smiths bookshop was built on the site of Baillies bakery shop. Crawfords wool shop must also have been demolished as I remember Prams and Toys as the last shop in the row. Back Mesnes Street became Mesnes Terrace and widened, and became a thoroughfare for traffic most notably when the one way system was introduced in the 1970s, buses coming into town from Crompton Street, turned right into Standishgate, left into Dicconson Street, into Mesnes Terrace, left into Mesnes Street then Marsden Street to get to the bus station.
