After the clearance of old buildings in North Street and King Street in 1938, the site remained empty for 19 years and was used as a car park. Barclays Bank bought the site for new premises but before this work was started, more old houses had to be removed. 21/27 Portland Street (despite the numbering there were only 4 houses)
The photographs were taken in May 1955, but it was not until June 1957 that these buildings were demolished and the building of the bank premises commenced.
