I used to look out my window at this building - lived there from 1993 to 98. I was on the 4th floor of a building exactly like the one pictured and paid 2 pounds a week rent until I got a job. Then it went up to 60 pounds.
Twenty odd years ago I asked an elderly stall holder at Avondale market how much she wanted for a small box of original Beatles 45s. She said, 'Oh you have them dear, I'm getting sick of sitting here!'.
