This is the building at the very top of the picture.


Googlemap 3D to the rescue.  It's hard to get the exact position as the Anglican blocks the shot, so I've approximated with the little mausoleum in top left.

Incidentally for anybody who doesn't know, that little mausoleum is a dumping ground for orphaned statues from buildings in the city that have been demolished.

Where'd you find that mate?

One of the tenement flats you can see at 1-45 is the actual one where I grew up as a kid. I reckon the view is along Watkinson Street.

And that beautiful building in  the first 20 seconds or so is the David Lewis Centre [known locally as the Davy Lew]. Absolute architectural masterpiece on a scale that makes the Florrie look like a garden shed. But its all much nicer now - there's a lovely big traffic intersection there instead.

Boss video mate.

Just one Youtube recommended after I went down a La's rabbit hole last night. Julian Cope impressing us all with his French accent.

Yes what an edifice that is, was there a football pitch / cage on the roof?
What's the tenement? Was it on Park Lane, I thought it might be Kent Gardens?

here's the link

Just checked Rob's post from a couple of pages back.  Seems it sat right in the middle of the junction where Great George Street meets Parliament Street.

Cheers mate.

It was St James’ Gardens, which stood on the corner of Park Lane and Nelson St. Theres a Chinese supermarket on the site now (Nelson St is the street that runs up to the arch in the middle of Chinatown).

Kenty was nearby but was a much bigger block than ours. It was near Park Lane too, but was much nearer to town- within about 150 yards of the current site of the John Lewis car park.

Not sure if the Davy Lew had a pitch on the roof, but about 100 yards further up towards the cathedral was a youth club called The Yorky which definitely did. Spent many happy hours up there playing footy fifty foot above street level in a safety cage that only had about six large holes in it😁

This video was on Twitter a few months back and the lad in the top hat was tagged into it a late 50odd year old man now 😀

My parents would never have allowed me to go that far with (what passed for) my mates when I was that age. He only looks about 10. ;D

Granted, there were a lot of tower blocks and residential areas on the outskirts of the city back then.  :)
