We present new CCD photometry of the Small Magellanic Cloud star cluster Lindsay 1 in UBVI filters. It is the first photometry in U and I filters. We determine the reddening . Using a variety of metallicity indicators in the optical and the infrared regions we determine a cluster metallicity and . We find that Lindsay 1 has an age of 9–10 Gyr.
