A few weeks ago the New Walk Centre, for many years the offices of Leicester City Council, were demolished.
I photographed the buildings on their last full day and posted a video of their demise.
As you can see above, I went back today to photograph the site.
But what, I hear you ask, was on this site before the New Walk Centre was built in the early 1970s?
Thanks to a new discovery, the University of Leicester's collection of photographs Vanished Leicester, I can show you the site being cleared in 1971, just as it is being cleared now.
