A nice old photo of St Paul's School (for Alan H), with New Park St running up the left hand side and Alma St to the right. I'm unsure of the year, but looking at the cars, I'm guessing it was the mid 1960's?
One of the few schools with it's own clock tower I would have thought. I can't think of any others in Blackburn with a clock tower.
If anyone knows when it was eventually demolished, I would be interested to know.
For anyone unsure of where this school was located, below is a 1907 postcard of 'The Tech' (Victoria Centre as it now is) and if you look to the right of the card, you can clearly see the clock tower.
The photo below the postcard, is prior to the construction of The Technical School / Victoria Centre and as you can see, the school and clock were there back then too.
