with stepped slab coping and adjoining outbuildings with
hipped and lean-to roofs.
HISTORICAL NOTE: this building has considerable similarities
in design and layout to the junior schools built by the
Sheffield School Board during the preceding 10 years, perhaps
because illustrations of them were published by the
architects, Innocent & Brown, in 1874.
