Sinclair nostalgia

A while back, in a fit of 1980s nostalgia, I realised that my place of work is within walking distance of the old Sinclair building in Cambridge. So I decided to walk over there at lunchtime and see if I could still find it. This is how the building looked back in the 80s:

Anyway, this is what I found when I walked over there recently:

I was quite pleased that there was still a small street sign bearing the name "Sinclair" at the entrance. The building looks like it's part of Anglia Ruskin University nowadays.

It's a shame that the big Sinclair logo was taken down. But the building is clearly recognisable, which is pretty cool.
