For some information about the building, which dates from 1874, see NY4056 : The former Drill Hall, frontage on Strand Road .
In the foreground, Georgian Way cuts across the site once occupied by another drill hall. That one was built for the Cumberland Royal Garrison Volunteer Artillery in 1907, in the garden of their new HQ at Albert House (originally a mid-19th century residence) in Albert Street. After various changes in military organisation, the drill hall became part of the Strand Road TA Centre in 1953. Albert House (by now a club) was demolished to make way for the dual carriageway in 1969, so presumably the drill hall came down at the same time. (Information from an article by D.Perriam, Cumberland News 01.02.2008).
This historical bit of description was added to provide an entry in a nationwide photo collection of drill hall sites by members of the Geograph Britain and Ireland Project - see LinkExternal link .
