The more formal picture of the boys in their suits has a sign on the side of the buidling that reads Montgomery College and another stone below it that indicates the cornerstone was laid by the Mayor Thomas Moore in 1869.

  11. Magnificent. Utter gibberish or a clever means of advertising ?
  12. Any attempt is better than none ! Large gable end, presumably with a track or passageway between the buildings. Cobbled street with very wide pavements. Got to be Whitsun with all them nice new clothes.
