The building to the left was replaced with what is not the Plaza de la Cultura, the Pops at the foot of the Gran Hotel still stands, so does the Lehman store and the Gran Via hotel, though the name changed recently. Though the photo is not dated, it appears early 1970’s (by the vehicles). If you can shed a light on this, please use the comments section below.
