A good example of how slowly things sometimes move, even in the 20th century. Soon after Courtney Gate was projected in 1934, the owner of Flag Court decided to sell and it was proposed to build a hotel on the site. Note the advertisement on the hoarding. These two photographs date from 1935. This proposition fell through but Flag Court was demolished some two years later.
