Manor Park Library, E12
Manor Park Library, E12
This is the Romford Road fašade of this ornate building, built at the junction with Rabbits Road. The Library was a Carnegie Library funded by the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The use of sandstone infilled with dark brickwork gives the impression of a building more typical of Carnegie Libraries in his native Scotland. The names Milton, Shakespeare, Tennyson and Carlyle are carved in the stonework immediately below the balustrade at roof level, while Dickens and Longfellow appear just below the lower balustrades. Over the main entrance on the left are carved the words "Let there be light", while "Carnegie" and "Library" appear on the main building frontage at the first floor level.
