Does the Swan still have the mock-Tudor library or has that gone since I left the area in 2004? I used to think it was medieval when I was a kid and that the Lennon's building was ancient. It all seemed so big and imposing back then (1970's). The hustle and bustle of the shops on a Saturday and the cooling red brick entries during the hot summers. Nostalgia aside, is the round house on St Oswald St the oldest surviving building still?
The library is still there.

I feel like that's been done to allow it to be modified in the future, or is that wishful thinking?
No, I think they just wanted to create something that looks like an old art deco cinema building that's been converted into a shop, hence the 'bricked up' windows.

It's quite a nice shop though - it has a cafe at the front in the window.
