    Default Seaman's orphanage behind the Philharmonic?

    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!)

    There was a boys and girls Orphanage on Myrtle street and it's attached church of the holy innocents. It was all demolished in the early 30s for the building of Myrtle Gardens, Orphan st is still there. Pics on my site I think though i've a backlog. There are also gravestones in St James Cemetery (the pit behind the Anglican Cathedral) dedicated to the youngsters who died there. I think i've posted those up here sometime.

    Is there a 'pit' at the front too?

    I take the front to be where the people used to go in at St James street squire
