Old Off Licence, Northfield Road
When I were a lad, this used to be a "Jug and Bottle" off licence where you could get draft beer for "consumption off the premises."
There was a barrel of beer in a dark little shop and an old boy would fill, well, jugs and bottles or any other suitable container with Ind Coope IPA if I remember correctly.
Of course, it closed years ago and became some sort of workshop, but if you zoom in you can still just make out "off licence" painted on the wall, and the sign is in the faded 60's or 70's colour scheme of Allied Breweries.
Now it's boarded up and derelict. It ought not to be too hard to turn it back into housing. That would be the most useful thing nowadays.
