All shiny and brand new just after its September opening. The new shops to the right of the picture have yet to be occupied. To the left of the picture, the Langham Road Flats are yet to be built and there's what looks like a garage at the junction of Langham and Graham Roads.
Also previously unnoticed by yours truly, I see that what later became known as "the mushroom"/"the umbrella" supports a ring of four lights high on the air. I assume this was some kind of wayfinder - or the architect's proud flourish.
