Lascar House on the corner of Vandries Street
Lascar House, on the corner of Vandries Street and Waterloo Road, was the former home of Auto Klean Strainers Ltd and Beldam Asbestos Co.Ltd. It has been boarded up for some time and in the early hours of the 21st July 2009 part of the building collapsed across the road LinkExternal link

Apparently the word Lascar was once the name used to describe a sailor or militiaman from the Indian subcontinent LinkExternal link , but I don't know how the name came to be applied to this building
A contributor to Flickr suggests that the building was once a public house.
