It's Vicky again!!

Again, looking through the old garage site towards the new office building (Paladin UK) which faces Blenheim Place. It used to be a council yard of some sort.

Next door but one from 76 Carden Place is Quantum Claims, Frunkie Lefevre's "no win -no fee" operation. Also features the front entrance to Dizzy's Bistro. The real horror lurks round the back.


76 Carden Place, now called Balmoral House


Looking down Carden Place from Queen's Cross

This used to be Grampian TV Studios, again being turnes into flats. The dry cleaners to the right of the picture was a police sub station at one time. Our neighbourhood policeman is now based in Ferryhill !!
