East Side: 122 Academy Street

In 1920, this building was occupied by “Catch My Pal”, a temperance movement, on land now occupied by the Iron Works. This image shows how the buildings appeared in 1920.

The Merkinch Welfare Hall had close links with the Academy Street Catch My Pal and their webpage has a wealth of information:
