The old school on Bankside

Right next to the corner of Air Street that I showed yesterday is this old building which at first I thought was an old chapel but which was actually a school opened in 1858 and closed fifty or so years later. Since then it has been used as a warehouse. The bricked up entrance leads right onto Bankside so it was probably just as well they didn't have heavy lorries trundling past in those days. Right behind the school runs the river Hull so you can imagine how small the school yard was. See quite how small and other images of this old school here.
