Thornton Street demolition/ Middleton Grange site

What we know about this image :

On this 1967 image, the  section of Thornton Street to the east of York Road has almost gone and the area left is virtually that on which Middleton Grange Shopping Centre was built. As the photo shows, the houses were not slums but quite substantial homes.

Stockton Street had at this point to be demolished and can be seen running along in the distance. The shopping centre was built so that the back of Binns was incorporated into it.
