The Nicholson Institute 6

Features of interest on the exterior of the building include a set of tableaux over the windows depicting former activities at the school. Among them are tableaux depicting Science, Physics and Chemistry, Music, Art, Literature, Cookery, Needlework, Dyeing, Manual Instruction, Weaving, Commerce and Agriculture.


  1. The large windows alone are already attractive. How wonderful to come here and see the reliefs — they're fantastic! Quite interesting to find out what kinds of subjects were taught in the 19th century too.

  2. That is a lovely building. It has an imposing personality.
