TTHIS evocative picture was taken at Buckingham Bingo in Bridge Street in October 2003.
Players in the packed hall have their eyes down, hoping for a full house. That night a competition was being held to find the Northern Bingo Caller of the Year.
A staff member can be seen pushing around a tea trolley.
Buckingham Bingo was later bought out by another company, leading to a name change: it became Buzz Bingo.
This closed in 2022 while work proceeded to repair on the bus carriageways at the Interchange, which sit above the venue. But since then, due to the condition of the building, it has closed for good.
In such a handy location, it will no doubt be missed by many of the regulars.
