Comments
Between Kirby Grove, Snowsfields, Hardwidge Street and Leathermarket Gardens. The S section, with the rooftop playground appears to date from 1881 and be the work of Robson. The N section, which bears a plaque indicating Enlarged 1900 is probably the work of Bailey. The schoolkeeper's house is original. Hard urban school.
