A View Over the Carpark at Eastgate, Inverness, 1970s

This view of the former carpark at Eastgate was taken prior to the development of the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Inverness.

The original centre was completed in 1983, with a refurbishment ten years later. In 1997 the developers put forward the proposals for a much needed extension in order to accommodate the increasing demand for retail units. The extension was completed in 2003 and included a bridge link to the other side of the road.

The listed building where Laura Ashley and Pizza Express are currently housed originally formed part of the Falcon Foundry at Inverness railway terminus. The building, which can be seen towards the top right of this picture, was dismantled stone by stone and rebuilt in its current position. The concourse outside the new Eastgate extension, Falcon Square, was named after John Falconer, the founder of Falcon Foundry.
