Contrasting pictures of the important site, in the heart of the town, at the junction of Castle Square and East Street. The buildings seen are 10/12, Castle Square, and the taller one around the corner, 45 East Street. For more than a century No. 12 was occupied by the high-class Boot and Shoe Makers, Dutton and Thorowgood, who later took over the East Street premises. In October, 1946, the buildings were sold at auction for the reputed sum of £72000, a large amount for those days. Within a few years Dutton and Thorowgood had left. Date of photograph – 25 March 1984. Demolished – September/October 1984.
