Technical school

Postby old-git » 02 Dec 2006, 23:52

This was the second Technical school, built in 1894, The first was on Broad street.8)

This from 1900 Kellys -
The Liberal club, Broad street, formerly the old Tech school, and converted to it's present use in 1894, consists of one large room containing billiard, card and reading tables.

This about the new school from Hillens -

And from 1900 Kellys -

Marked on this 1908 map. 8)

Looking at the houses behind this school I dont see anything that
looks remotely like the hospital walk area, but was this pic taken before the hospital was built do you think.

Could be, but don't think Brewery buildings are close enough.

The bit from kellys 1900
The Liberal club, Broad street, formerly the old Tech school, and converted to it's present use in 1894, consists of one large room containing billiard, card and reading tables.

Seems to suggest that the old,old technical school in Broad street was only on one floor. Will have to wait hopefully that something else turns up on the Liberal club.

I think the teacher in the first pic is Ollie Davidson the school teacher, he was also well known for his support for Kings Lynn Football Club, and there are several photos of him on the forum.
Looking at the top of the houses in the background and taking into account there angle it could possibly be the back of the old school in Pilot Street?

Pleasant Row

Postby teddybear1959 » 09 Sep 2007, 15:59

I agree with Roger, the only row of houses they could be is Pleasant Row. If you look at the shot from the air on here somewhere, you will see the orientation of the building and that makes Pleasant Row a very strong candidate!
