photoblog image The Andrew Carnegie Library

The Andrew Carnegie Library


Lister Drive, Liverpool. Built over a hundred years ago with sponsorship from the Scottish/American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie, over a hundred years ago, it no stands empty and falling into decay. It was closed in 2006 on grounds of Health and Safety and would require thousands of pounds spending on it to bring it up to standard.

I have happy memories of this building as I lived my early years not far from it and remember going to the library, what an occasion it was, over fifty five years ago. My abiding memory, even at that young age, was of the Steam Railway books of O. S. Nock, a prolific recorder of Britains railways in the age of steam.

View was a bit dominated by the tree branches, l would love a clearer view of this old building. l do like the processing, how do you get the edges like that.

Great work Les
Magnificent picture Les, it really brings out the lack of attention with the wildly growing trees. O.S.Nock could be considered the master of railway writing I suspect.
Great building and your treatment suits it well.
Great processing for this building Les...A really fine job.
