Yellow and Blue

The Powerhouse Gym is located in part of what was originally the Hippodrome Theatre and cinema. Below it is now M G Electrics Extra. The domestic appliance retailer formerly occupied Woodhead House, now Cash Converters, across the road. They moved to premises higher up Market Street some years ago. I presume from the word "Extra" that this is an additional outlet for them. They have moved into the shop previously occupied by "Let's Celebrate" who specialise in party balloons and the like. They have moved into smaller premises next door on the corner of Borough Arcade. Those were previously "Sew & Sews" which offered a seamstress service as well as craft sundries.

A contribution to Mellow Yellow Monday and Blue Monday.


  1. That's a very confusing bunch of changes. But at least those stores are still in business. And they've got a powerhouse of a gym looking over them!

  2. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy 1st Blue Monday, Gerald!
