Angus was there to interview the cafe's owner, Morgan Sowden, for Internet Magazine. I was just there for the ride.

19 years on and as Jo and I drove into the city this week it suddenly occurred to me to recreate those panoramas.
So there are odd artefacts in the new panoramas if you look, but it was worth the effort. I tried to find the exact tripod spot each time (not always successfully as you will see).
It was an entertaining and sometimes emotional job, especially the City Hall interior - what an incredible restoration, which was finished only two years ago.
The panoramas are thumbnailed below. They link through to the full sizes and captions on the Flickr album.
