St. John's Church at the corner of Barr Street/Montgomerie Street by the looks of it.
Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

That made me laugh :lol: . I am right. You're looking across Winton Park, the enclosure behind the west goal in view, the 'big gate' that opens on to Hill Place also in view, over the Castle Hill, to the steeple of St. John's with the Shell Mex chimneys to its right. I hope nobody corrects me now :lol: .
