Your bonus points is that as I go past it twice a day, what the usual interval between the passes? If you've been to Harrogate you'd know this one.
I like work. I can watch it for hours.

ET may use it now, but as to how many intervals between passes I have no idea (the latter bit is not cryptic).And no, I did not search Google Street View as I feel sure Betty's was where I recall (just!) if I am right.

I like Leodian's cryptic reply and agree that we both know the location! My mother used to buy bread from the bakery on the ground floor but refused to pay the prices in the cafe on the first floor - I think I have inherited her sense of value for money! It's interesting to see a zebra crossing in the photo - you wouldn't need one of those in that location now.

Forgive me if I've missed the point, but is this a quiz item ?? I also know exactly where it is, and there is a clue to the centre of the question if you know where to look.
There's nothing like keeping the past alive - it makes us relieved to reflect that any bad times have gone, and happy to relive all the joyful and fascinating experiences of our own and other folks' earlier days.

Presumably one rings for a takeaway now? And the caller lands up at commercial premises!
