Manchester School of Art

I think it is now the Manchester Metropolitan School of Art. Part of the University. I had the opportunity to accompany a group of students to see the degree exhibition - they were extremely impressed as I was. However I did manage to take many photographs - the memorial was the most important item. I did photograph the plaques too - Have to go on the appropriate page but here is the memorial - together with the location shot.




The outside of the main entrance.
There are plaques on the outside. The inside was heaving with students!

Close to the foyer is the roll of honour. Little bit different as the roll is colour coded.
My transcription has separated them.

House Red Cross Hospital (Manchester), and Commandant of the 82nd Detachment East Lancashire Red Cross, died whilst on a visit to Peel, on 1st September, 1918. She was the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mylchreest, 1 Daisy Bank, Old Trafford, Manchester, and was 30 years of age. After leaving boarding school, she attended the Manchester School of Art, and had the honour of executing a page of the Illuminated Address which was presented by the Manchester Corporation to H.M. King George on his visit to that city. Nurse Mylchreest commenced her services with the Red Cross Society in September, 1914. From the IOM Examiner 1918

The other plaques in the building refer to openings and centenaries and will be posted elsewhere but linked.

Lots of further research and a datapage to follow - but the names are more important.;
