Halifax Before Eureka 1

This is the first of two photographs that explores that part of Halifax near the railway station before the building of the National Children’s Museum (Eureka!) in 1992. I must have taken these two photographs in the 1980s, well before the building that now houses the museum was constructed. Geographical logic tells me that this photograph must have been taken from somewhere around Bath Street, although I am having difficulty getting the buildings to fit in with the modern view of the area. In the background you can clearly see the Mackintosh factory and behind that the unmistakeable Beacon Hill.

  1. In 1982 the address of Halifax Arts and Crafts Centre was Blackledge. This would line up the background more accurately. Malcolm Stocks
