No idea Paul.I would have been about five when they started knocking it down.I had never heard of it before I started looking through a box of old clippings passed on to me.I am sure there is someone on here that could tell us though,hopefully.What store would that be keegs?? and where was it situated!!!
It came in a box of old clippings that were from an elderly relative.I am still working my way through them and posting any I think the forum members may find of interest.This one had no extra info with it,but I had never heard of it,or where on New Street it was.Hi,
The original Pantechnetheca was knocked down in 1857 and replaced by a much larger parade of shops commissioned by Samuel Hyam; there's a little bit about the original building here... https://theabsentcity.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/pantechnetheca-pantechnetheka.html . It was Samuel Hyam's building that was taken down in the 1950s, I think he probably kept the name as it was so unusual. Where did you get the clipping from keegs?
