    Default UNSEEN AND UNPUBLISHED - LISTER DRIVE - 21ST AUGUST 1967

    Lister Drive from Green Lane as seen on 21/8/67. Once a hive of activity with a Primary School, Public Library, donated by benefactor Andrew Carnegie and opened in 1905, a public swimming baths (1904) and major power station, it is now sadly a shadow of its former self.

    Only the baths survives as a functioning building, acting as a fisheries and pet centre with some original features still on view. Facing this are the allotments which stretch right across to the rear of the Grade II listed former Seamans Orphanage (1874 by Alfred Waterhouse) which fronts onto Newsham Park. You will just see the swings on the childrens playground on the right of the 2nd photo.

    Photos from the LRO. Scrollbar required at the foot of the post to see the photos in full.

    An area I'm very familiar with, great to see its former glory. I hope that what is left is kept!

    I went to the school 1942 to 45 and used the library a lot and the baths up to about 1950. The space opposite the school over to Brainerd St was used as a dump for bricks from bombed buildings at the time. In November 1940 the Luftewafer flew over and took an aerial photo of the area with the power station as a target. There is a copy in the record office. alan
