Did anyone see the article in tonight's "Echo" about the conversion of a former seaman's orphanage in Myrtle st. behind the Philharmonic Hall,into apartments,etc? It's just that I've never heard of it before,and wondered if anyone on here,knew anything of it's history? Looking at the pic's in the article, I thought it looked very similar to the one in Newsham park,so maybe there's some connection?!
(tried to find the on-line version,but no luck!)
