Changed a bit now a dual carriageway Pedestrian Crossing with Lights no buses, The 29 used to Terminate there. Useful park and ride if you get up early. The Sherwood pub gone think its Behans Bar now.

It looks more '60's than '80's  :)

The latest I can check is the mid 70's and those shops were there then (they have changed now) So I suppose its entirely possible they were still there in the 80's.

I'm not doubting that the picture could be '80's as per your post (it's tagged 1987), but the shop & posters just look old fashioned.  It looks nice.
