That was a brilliant building. I've yet to see any photos taken inside the old winter gardens, but the outside had a real look of victorian class about it.

There's another one of both doing the rounds, but taken from the other angle (from the Deptford area). There can't have been too much time when both existed fully in tact. I recall they started Roker's demolition pretty much immediately after the last match there.

Was thinking the same, --then brought back memories when they were selling everything off from Roker, ----we bought a few pieces of the Turf, and incorporated into the Lawns.

That's a good shot of the old Winter Gardens, there's a good pic somewhere of the Gardens, the old Town Hall and the Victoria Hall all in the same shot; I'll try find it and post it up here.

Meanwhile, anyone guess where this one was taken (fairly easy one I think):
