This is a similar photo to TL4458 : Cambridge University - The Old Schools, but taken under more favourable lighting.

The Old Schools are the oldest University (as distinct from College) buildings in Cambridge. As well as being an administrative centre (as they still are), until the early 1930s they were also the home of the University Library. The photo shows the easterly of the two courts. I understand that it is only because the money ran out (not just a modern problem!) that these courts survive in their medieval form rather than being 'classicised' to match the Senate House.

For anyone who is puzzled about the location, the Old Schools are immediately north of King's College Chapel, and west of Great St Mary's Church. They are not open to the public.
