These photos from the EDP and Evening News archive show Bank Plain in beautiful black and white.

Taken in the 1980s, they show how the area looked when it still had a bank.

The thriving London Street shops area also pictured.

  • To be fair, if you took the same picture today there would be no pedestrians and those shops would closed downderelict. So I do actually agree this photo is beautiful by today's standard.

  • Ah, the good old days of black and white land in the year 19 hundred and 90, when Bank Plain actually had a Barclays Bank, and the Alliance and Leicester. And even a Post Office. "Oh, Nostalgia" * wistful sigh *

  • Superb journalism, picture dated November 1990 and the first line reads "Taken in the 1980's"

  • Probably one or two more beggars on the streets now or maybe the PPI or Injury specialists that hound you at lunch...

  • Looks the same as it does today and I wouldn't say it was particularly beautiful either, sometimes black and white enhances a view but not in this case.
