    Default Albion Street

    does anyone have a pic of this street taken roundabout the late 60's or before the area was demolished?

    Albion street ran parralel with StGeorges church,cannot remember the street name and the wall of StGeorges graced the street all the way down,the other street at the bottom of Albion Street was Northumberland Terrace.
    Albion Street was at the back of StDomingo Road,in the street was a club at the top if memory serves me right it was called "Albion House"? you used to go up a flight of stone steps to go into the hall.
    I wus a nipper when I lived there in the street but was a right romeo with the young ladies when they used to sit outside on the steps.

    What a site this is so many memories of the past.

    Thanks for helping out if ya can.
    George.

    Albion House is still there George but don't know if it's still in use or not. I have some pics of the flats/maisonettes on my site below.

    Hi Ged
    Awsome site you have put up there alas it was the houses before the maisonettes I was interested in as someone argued with me there was no front gardens in Albion Street.
    There was as we lived one of the houses opposite to the ones that didn't have front gardens.
    They were on a bit of turf and a privvy edged bush but they was big enough and to bury our dog in.

    Much appreciated Ged.
    For the life of me I can't even remember the street after Albion St going towards nethy way,I remember a very old grocery store and thats it?

    Anyone remember a climb of a very steep wall I'm sure it was called the cat walk? and it might of been part of the john bagot building left there after the hospitals demolished state?

    Cheers.

    Would the street going north have been York Terrace, Hobart Street or Torr Street? It may even have been abolished during the redevelopment.
