The Supervalu shopping centre shown here opened in 1988 on the site of the old potato market and Hartes Timber Yard. The carpark, which can be seen in the foreground of the photograph, is on the site of what was Avenue House, which was occupied in 1798 by Sir John Moore. Sir John Moore was killed in at Corunna in 1809 and is the subject of the elegy written by Rev. Charles Wolfe. In the lefthand corner of the photograph can be seen flatlets, which are homes for the elderly. It is planned to build another block of flatlets on the site of the carpark. This photo was taken from the grounds of St. Peter's Church.
