Fantastic shot, Fossil.

The change in the skyline is emphatic -- and not for the better.

AFAIK the "Pokey Hat" building is the United Co-operative Baking Society's Bakery, now gone as far as I could see.

If you look closely you'll see it's in the process of demolition :(

"Look and look again" right enough. I just went back to look at the original pic, how the hell did I miss that?

Thats a good example of how conversions of that kind should be done. The exterior of the building is almost identical to that in the earlier photo

Just a pity it isn't actually used as a workplace anymore.
