I pass this every day on my way to and from work. What was this building used for?

Don't know what it was originally used for, but latterly it was used by Mark Williams butchers. There was a bakery at the front of this building on Darlington St, was it it McCandlish, anyhow on a warm summers night the shop front, the grating and pavement would be alive with cockroaches, they was said to have originated from the old gas works.
