The Ladysmith Centre



The Ladysmith shopping centre has had another facelift. The new look is tied in with major work such as the refurbishment and re-opening of the multi-storey car park, and the building of small sales booths along the side of Marks and Spencer. I showed a photo of the new-look Warrington Street entrance last month.

Compare today's photo of the entrance from Old Street with last year's photo of the same location. Personally I prefer last year's appearance, which looked smart and modern. However, both are better than the faded sixties look the centre had back in the days when it was simply referred to as "The Precinct".

  1. You know, I was thinking about Plant A tree in '73 this morning. I wonder how those trees are doing! I wonder if there is anyone left who remebers planting a tree in 1973!
    Onec the Precinct, always the Precinct.

    Martin, you are right, last years picture show a more attractive facade. This one is horrid and as a graphics trained pro there is something very 1970's about this look!

  2. It looks quite similar to our malls...but is it indoor or partially outdoor? Nice when they fix 'em up.
