Zoom-out

This building lies to the north of Greenbank Drive, opposite the site of the City Hospital (on the south side of Greenbank Drive, now closed and converted to housing).

Thank you to Michael Melrose for emailing me to tell me:

City Poorhouse

"The building in this photo was originally built as the main and administrative building of the City Poorhouse.

The building and the other remaining original converted buildings were subsequently taken over as Greenbank Old Peoples Home."
