Freeman's Temperance Commercial Hotel, Corporation Street, in the late 1970s. Built last century to attract the rail travellers, this hotel was advertised as 'home from home', with fourteen en suite rooms, billiards and dining saloons. It was Jay's furniture store for some time after the war but stood empty for a long time before its final demolition.
