    Default Upper stanhope street

    Ive been trying to get info on a building on upper stanhope street, its on the park road end facing the church. It looks similar to the merchant houses further down by cains. I payed a visit recently and it looks pretty much derelict but it was getting used in the 90s as rehearsal rooms,any pointers to an old photo or any info would be much appreciated....,great site by the way, cheers.

    It's ok barizla. No need for apologies though I was trying to place it. I'll take a look in my Edwardian A-Z to see if it's named and take a look at it next time i'm down that way.

    It's 18 Upper Stanhope Street (assuming I've got the right building).
    Once rather grand, judging by the double-fronted appearance, and bigger than its neighbours (1906 OS map).
    I don't know anything about its early life, but it has been extended at the rear (1950s map), and by the 1930s (Kellys) was a laundry.
    Dexter laundry by the 1960s (Kellys).

    Don't know what its been used for since though I note you say a rehearsals studio.

    Thanks for that Ged, i always thought it stood out, when we used it in the 90s it stiill had some the original covings and skirting but its in bad shape now. I checked it on google street view, i was wondering if there was any other pics? thanks for that info much appreciated.
