This is the Harrison Gymnasium, opened in 1909. The top photo shows the whole building, the second, just the main entrance. The third photo is the arched window above the doorway, viewed from inside the building. It depicts the Harrison coat of arms, along with their motto 'Not Rashly Nor With Fear'
The final photo, shows a sample of the lovely, period tiling on the Gymnasium staircase and landing, very Art Nouveau. There was similar tiling on the staircases and corridors of the next door Institute too.
