Abstract:
Ecus Ltd was commissioned by BHL Consultants Ltd to undertake Historic Building Recording of the former Hackney Ambulance Station, Paragon Road, London, E9 6NR), located at 534980 184627. The building research and survey was undertaken between 14/04/14 and 25/04/14. The extant remains form two phases; the principal structure erected in in 1929 for the London County Council Ambulance Service, and a subsequent extension made post-1950. The ambulance station was constructed in the stark vernacular typical of the post-First World War period, and comprised a relatively small facility with accommodation for a single ambulance and crew. Photographs taken in 1929 record the original appearance of the station and depict a low-loading ambulance that was a relatively new innovation at the time. Whilst little remains of the structure of the Hackney Ambulance Station, there is sufficient historic evidence to form a broad understanding of the building's function and development. A review of documentary sources has not revealed any specific references to its involvement during the Second World War. Aesthetically the remnant structure is of low value, although the remaining sign is of potential historical and communal value and could be repaired and reused in future developments or offered to a relevant museum.
