Demolition of Norwood College, Harrogate, 1972
Demolition of Norwood College, Harrogate, 1972
Norwood College stood on the corner of Tewit Well Ave and Leeds Rd, Harrogate. It was established as a Boy's Day and Boarding School by 'Charlie' G W G Cass in 1936 and closed on 24 March,1972. This photograph was taken because I just happened to be visiting Harrogate and had no prior knowledge of the school's closure nor intention to demolish it! The photograph is taken from Tewit Well Ave; the flats on the left hand side are those of Royal Crescent in Leeds Rd. The car, mine, was a Triumph 1500.

Charlie Cass was born in Scarborough in 1898, flew as a fight pilot in Sopwith Dolphins in the First World War and the world-renouned physicist, Lawrence Bragg, was one of his tutors at the Victoria University of Manchester in the mid-1920s. Charlie died on 13 October,1976.
