The Burton building on the far corner still exists, and is now a Halifax building society, but many of the other buildings in this picture are long gone. Between that building and the one with the ball on top, Waterfront Way now runs through, itself replacing the flyover that appeared in the 1980s.
The pub on the corner in the foreground on the right hand side was demolished and is now an H Samuel jeweller. Lloyds still occupies the site on the left of the junction, but in a more modern building, built around the shell of the one in the picture.
The 'ghost' of the high-level Burton sign is still visible on the side of the Halifax.
