Tower Street Congregational Church 1956

What we know about this image :

Taken as the church was to be demolished in 1956, new flats are being built just behind it. These flats were soon to be joined by the new St Joseph's School as this was the first part of the redevelopment of the central area of West Hartlepool.


The photo was from a photographic record of the Central Area of West Hartlepool prepared in 1955/6 at the request of the Town Planning and Redevelopment Committee 'in the hope that it will be of interest to future generations of West Hartlepool'  

The record focuses on areas which were within the next ten years to be completely redeveloped following The Max Lock Plan. It was compiled by WL Taylor and photographs developed by Thomas Clarkson Chemist of Tower Street.
