I remember the bike shop... used to go up there in the 70's every Saturday to look at the airfix kits on the left hand side on the balcony bit.... and then to buy balsa wood for model planes...

The other toy shop was down by the old crossing .. probably the yorkshire building society... used to have model trains and stuff... didn't last long...

The bike shop used to sell Smurfs I remember. Also, wasn' t it also a record shop? Or was that next door?
I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.
