Stoke Library

Camera No.9

Wealthy benefactor, Andrew Carnegie, paid for three libraries to be built shortly before World War One. Stoke, Earlsdon and Foleshill libraries all had their foundation stones laid in 1912, and all were opened in 1913.

A click on the old photograph will show that in 2022, not only has the building not been spoilt, but is, thankfully, still in use as a library, when so many have been closed due to lack of funding.

if you wish to see the images separately.
