Southport Revisited, some gems discovered

Southport sands were a place where I remember rushing to try and find the sea immediately after arriving, and there are many photos to prove it. Later on I learnt to drive on the sands. Last weekend, it was a wander round after walking from Birkdale, I wanted.
There are many  delights to be found, but here are a few:
 This bank on Lord Street has one of the finest Corinthian facades according to the plaque on the right of the front door. Shame HSBC have been allowed to detract from it.
It was formerly Preston Bank and has been wonderfully photographed:

 Some of the wonderful stained glass in Wayfarer's Arcade.
Upper floors of BHS in the dark.
