Also for anyone who did not know what it looked like before it was demolished here is a couple more photos of it looking from either Regent St or Blackburn Road.
This also shows Paradise Terrace (Ranters Row) with Regent Street at the right hand bottom corner.
You can see Harold's newspaper and sweet shop at the point where the tram is.

And just across the road from Paradise Terrace was St. James's School as you can see in the photo. But in the past there was also the Old Church Institute and also Martin's Bank. Both these have been demolished and the small garden shown in this photo is on the site of the old bank. More to follow soon.
