Looking west from the top of the cathedral

Looking west we can see the bowling alley under construction to the left of the blue Hydro store, next to the power station, and also the new library being built, in front of the power station. At the top of the picture, the supermarket is still Safeways (ah, the good old days) and the building in the old council yard next door is still standing. And no Groatie Hoose in the Tankerness House Gardens.

It's all go.
