The previous post looked at the evolution of the old Lundin Mill School building on Crescent Road (the present library building). As well as major changes to the building over the years, there have been many small changes. A couple of examples of minor changes are shown below. The first shows that, as it became necessary to enable vehicular access to the rear of the school, a boundary wall had to be altered in order to provide a wide enough passage. Note the building close to the top right hand corner of the image below, labelled 'School Meals'. This was apparently added in the early 1960s as a dinner hall, along with a prefabricated classroom.
The second example concerns the external toilet block, altered in 1963. At that time the floors and roofs were redone. The elevation and cross-section are shown below. The late 1960s photograph below that shows the toilet block and adjoining shelter in the background. Emsdorf Street is visible in the distance. The group of children are facing towards the back of the school building. The next post will look at the innovative design of the replacement school building, opened in 1974.
