Anno Domini 1908

Sir John Cass Foundation Primary School, Aldgate, City of London

“This building now houses the Junior school of the Foundation established by Sir John Cass. Our picture shows the north-east elevation on Dukes Place and the return down an alley. The building extends back to Mitre Street which also has an elevation for show. All other visible aspects of this building were clearly not expected to be on display. We imagine street widening (possibly prompted by bomb damage) has caused this unseemly exhibition, making a once proud building look a mess.”
