    It is a magnificent building...but would have looked far better had the surrounding Conway Street/Claughton Road area not been flattened!

    I go past there everyday en-route to college in Claughton

    The flyover's gone which has improved the view of that side of Conway Street, and the two former cinemas, but the Ritz has been demolished, another criminal act.

    I took some close-ups of that school.
    It's a great building.
    Great photos, gd.
