Shame they couldn't have attempted to match the shots. Interesting that not a lot has happened on the left but the right has been developed a fair amount. I'd love to know what the buildings in the B&W image were on the right connected by one of the arms off the fountain.

If you mean this bit here, it's Wellington Barracks.

Would those buildings you refer to in your reply be The Wellington Barracks?

Thank you kindly sirs. I assumed it had to be Military but it looks very different between the 2 so assumed it had been redeveloped into yuppie flats or something. Guess a fairly intense bombing campaign can do that to buildings
