The ‘Eyes’ Have It

Formerly part of the Dock Company’s estate north of Queen’s Dock (modern-day Queen’s Gardens), you may be able to spot a couple of similarities between past & present here on Savile Street.  The most notable is the presence of an opticians practice both nowadays and in our archive image from 1908 (in which there are two). Also, despite the demolition of the building with a clock on its corner, the architects of the present day building have introduced a modern clock face into the design, ensuring this feature is in some way preserved, yet modernised.
