Part of an iconic former music shop in Aberdeen has been demolished.
The rear of the former Bruce Miller’s shop on Langstance Place has been knocked down to develop 90 executive apartments for long-term stays.

The proposals were first lodged in 2014, with the site previously earmarked for a 134-bedroom hotel.
Tip Top Properties – a division of city-based Carlton Rock – sold the Union Street development to OCM Luxembourg, a hotel company with properties across Europe.
Bruce Miller’s closed down in 2011, but the frontage on Union Street has been kept.
However, the buildings to the rear of Langstane Place have been demolished.
Councillor for the area Alan Donnelly today said the shop is still missed in the city centre.
He added: “That was an old, well-established business.
“It’s depressing to see a lot of empty shops.
“We are going back to the mid-80s when the price of oil also fell.
“The music shop has been missed.
“Shopping is changing. Lots of people are buying online but it’s a shame to see an iconic store close.
“Any development which enhances the street is welcome rather than empty shop fronts.”
