Union Passage, Wests Grill and the Cadena Cafe.

My family had a newsagents and pattern shop on the far side of  the Caters block in the 60's.
It was demolished together with Wests Grill, Wessex Library and Smith and Clarks outfitters, the Cadena cafe has survived as an amusement arcade.
As a child I was always fascinated by the Trout swimming in the window of Wests Grill and was told you could chose one and they would cook it.
Though I was taken there several times I never had the fish.
Further down Mr Leteurs drug shop was famous for the product on the sign, and passing school boys shouted out the name, such was the level of child crime in those days.
