 Walked up Northumberland St today ( Amazing that hardly any shops have a visible street number ) The west side of the street holds odd numbers. Marks and Spencer is at 83-89. I guess 81 would have been where now is the entrance to Eldon shopping mall.

 Bacon photographic shop has been the subject of a previous query.  Originally an Edinburgh company ( for more google "81 northumberland street newcastle" )
