That building and the way it has been photographed --as a sort of cross between a lunatic asylum and a factory-- says it all about the late 19th century attitude to children's education, doesn't it?
It certainly looks more severe than today's version.
WOW! Where did you did you find that photo Hugh?
The most noticeable differences between now and then to the building itself is the chimneys and the wall in the playground. Also, the arched bit is now filled in. Other than that, it has barely changed.
The perimeter wall on Frobisher Rd has also very obviously gone.
There seems to have been a bit of infill building too. Great pic, innit.
It is indeed. Now, where did you find it?!
I'll have a look at the file and see if I have a record. Any particular reason for your interest about where it came from?
Why???! Because I am curious! I'd like a copy for the school
doesnt it look grim and austere but I have very happy memories 1946---1952 Irene Neil was Withey
Built to last!
Hugh - do you remember I once posted on HOL a school project about all the people who lived on Falkland Road (as recorded in the 1901 census). Is it still on the site somewhere? I tried looking, but wasn't sure where it might be...
