Littlewoods Pools Building

Inside the Littlewoods Building

I heard about the fire in the Littlewoods building on the news this morning, and was slightly surprised because I hadn't known that Littlewoods Pools or the Littlewoods Pools building still existed.

It seems that Littlewoods Pools no longer exists, but that the Littlewoods Building was in the process of being converted into film studios.

The BBC report above provides a fascinating history with some wonderful B&W photographs from back in the day when 300,000 of us filled in the Pools coupons every week.
