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.
