Thanks derek. "House of Pain" sounds well in keeping with the look of the area. Pains me to think of all the families who must have lost their homes.

I have a few somewhere. I'll see if I can post them tomorrow, as I don't think I'll have time tonight.

Thank you so much, marty. I really appreciate you taking the time to do that. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will enjoy seeing your pictures.

A few pics of Thomas Street & Jackson Street in December 1965. It looks as though much of the east side of Thomas Street at the bottom end had already been cleared by then.

Never heard of it being a cinema.
The Shafts have been there for years - I think originally it was a church/church hall?
where's bert when you need him with his book about the Shafts

Many thanks for sharing your photos marty. Did you live near there yourself?

No. My family lived mainly in the North End, at various addresses around Laird Street. My maternal grandparents lived on Cleveland Street next to the Corpy Depot, whilst my dad's family lived mainly in the streets off Oxton Road.

I've just had a quick glance at a book I have about the Shafts. The club was originally housed in an old Baptist chapel in Jackson Street, but the main buildings (part of which are still there) were purpose-built as a boys' club, with development taking place in 1911 then in 1934. So I don't think it was ever a cinema.

Does anyone possibly have a map they can put on here showing the Thomas & Jackson St area as it was like in these photos? Thanks.
