Just looking on street view from the other side, a set of new remodelled steps are still there, although the view is much changed from yesteryearhttp://goo.gl/maps/PW9UD

All that lovely stone flag + cobbles.The last pic with dog+lamp is lovely. Also a lot to be said for black + white pics. Colour has it's place but seems to sometimes detract from the structural functionalism of the subject. It looks right.
