Gardner's Crescent

This view looks to the north along Gardner's Crescent, towards Morrison Street.  The photo was taken in the early evening as a storm was approaching.  It wasn't long before the heavy rain started!

 

Request for old Photographs

Derek Ainsley contacted me recently with a request for old photos of Gardner's Crescent.

Derek wrote:

 New Railings

"I have set up 'Friends of Gardners Crescent' group,  with a view  amongst other things to renewing the cast iron railings which used to be there.

All the photographs I can find only show the crescent later than  about 1940.

A lot of people tell me photographs of an earlier date exist, but all promises to let me have a copy  seem to vanish when I try to follow up."

Old Photos

If you know of any old photographs showing the railings in Gardner's Crescent, please e-mail me.  Then I'll pass on your message to Derek.

           Thank you.
