The Moor, no more

Ripping down the 1950's shops at the bottom of The Moor.
After being rebuilt in the 50s, The Moor was one of the main shopping streets in Sheffield, but in recent years has fallen in the quality stakes, and the buildings have soon become dated and quite ugly. A small history can be read here. These redevelopments were undertaken due to it being bombed quite heavily in the Second World War. 'Apparently' the Luftwaffe thought it was a steel works due to the lamp-lit tram tracks running up through the middle.
It is currently undergoing a new redevelopment and rebrand - website here.

I remember the Moor as always being a very busy place.
