    I think you may find Grafton House here http://inacityliving.piczo.com/?g=30679502&cr=7

    I'm not sure if the block titled Dingle House is in fact Grafton House. Did it have wrought iron railings on the landings (so 1920s) or brick (1930s)

    thanks to everyone for the help. yeah it was the one in hill street it was next to caryl gardens it shows an entry picture of caryl gardens and you can just make out the back of it. its funny because i was born in the rankin street tenements and moved over the road from the dingle tenements and watched them be demolished.
