    Default Scarlet Street, off St Anne Street, 1930s

    First of all, an apology. In my last but one post, I attributed Dickson Terrace to Dickson Street in the heart of docklands. Researching today’s photograph, I realised that Dickson Terrace was actually off Soho Street, a stone’s throw from Scarlet Street. I have corrected the error, which does not change the general context of [...]

    Scarlet Street, shown on the 1848/64 OS map [LRO].

    Before the 'Swimming baths' were built [boundary railings on the photograph] Scarlet Street had an identical row of terraces on the other side, judging by the symmetry on the map. I assume these must date from at least 1848?

    Another great photo Colin and map/info dazza.

    Upper Birkett street later changed to just Birkett Street.

    As dazza says, a swimming baths, an open air one was built on Mansfield st. The Judges houses were only demolished in the 1980s with pics of them on my site. The Judges had long since moved to Judges Drive in Newsham Park. Most of these streets were abolished and the four squares/Soho St tenements built on them in the early 1930s. Again, old and new photos of this area are on my site.

    The Four squares were further over,Ged.

    The streets around Upper Birkette were as you say demolished and replaced with factories ie the engineering firm,Drakes Pride,Edmondsons Lemonade ect,ect

    I know exactly where the four squares were squire. Bordered by Soho st/Wakefield st/Mansfield st and Springfield st.

    There was a smaller block on Birkett street too, not one of the 4 squares. Only one side of Birkett st was industry, ie. Pitt & Scott mainly, the other side were tenements. I'm looking at dazza's map and talking about Torbock st etc....

    Hi Ged,

    Re: the four Squares - a slightly bigger version of the map posted earlier.

    Does anyone know what a "Night Asylum" was? By the junction of Upper Birkett Street/ Soho Street.
