Merry Hill Shopping Center, west Midlands?

Well, the North British and Mercantile Insurance was originally in Edinburgh

I was going by C & A Modes building. But the one in the West Midlands din't open until later than the time this picture looks to have been taken. So withdraw my feeble attempt please.

Not Aitchbee's City, surely?

I'll hazard a guess at Charing Cross or George Cross in Glasgow ... I vaguely remember my little brother going for a job interview at Schweppes, many tonic-waters ago ...

It's Sheffield, but not sure of exact road yet. Fargate maybe.

  Woolwell 22:08 PM 07 Dec 12

Fitzalan Square, Sheffield?

  Brumas 22:11 PM 07 Dec 12

QuizMan, Woolwell, Well Done, Fitzalan Square and Fargate.

  Woolwell 22:13 PM 07 Dec 12

I would never have got that but for Quizman.

  Brumas 22:17 PM 07 Dec 12

Woolwell, I'm sure QuizMan won't mind you sharing the spotlight ;o}
