The Corn Exchange. It was a crime to demolish such a fine building. Despite the 1947 fire damage to a large part of the building, it could have been restored..:(

Like so many buildings in the post war era they could have been rebuilt but wasn't, perhaps lack of will or desire plus the economics of the time didn't help. In Germany they are rebuilding quite a few buildings like the Berlin City Palace that were destroyed in the war.

Yes indeed, the Germans have done much to reconstruct what was destroyed in the war - they did an excellent job in Münster for example. And even the Russians have made an effort. A cathedral in Moscow was blown up by Stalin and rebuilt by Yeltsin..:)

St. Paul's Church, on Pinstone Street (next to the Town hall). From the few photographs that still exist, it appears to have been a fine looking building.

The old Corn Exchange. A stunning great building sadly lost in a fire. I think it was on Exchange Street.

Yes, it had a frontage onto four streets in all; Exchange St - Wharf Street - Broad Street and Corn Exchange. See hillsbro's post #88 for a picture of the Corn Exchange frontage.

As the war was coming to a close someone made a model of a plan for a new city centre. It was masterful and compared well with how Plymouth was rebuilt. But it never came to fruition. They made a big hole in the middle of High Street, and a holy mess out of the Moor.

Hi,

 

I often wondered what happened to that model. I always assumed it became something of an embarrassment to the Town Hall crowd and was quietly disposed of.
