Sir John Cass Foundation, Aldgate - west corner Sir John Cass Foundation

Plaque: Sir John Cass Foundation, Aldgate - west corner

Erection date: 1908

Inscription

Sir John Cass's School

Site: Sir John Cass Foundation (6 memorials)

EC3, Aldgate, Primary School

This building now houses the Junior school of the Foundation established by Sir John Cass.

Our picture shows the north-east elevation on Dukes Place and the return down an alley.  The building extends back to Mitre Street which also has an elevation for show.  All other visible aspects of this building were clearly not expected to be on display.  We imagine street widening (possibly prompted by bomb damage) has caused this unseemly exhibition, making a once proud building look a mess.

There are 3 niches for statues: the 2 on the Dukes Place frontage are occupied with the two charity scholar statues but the one on the Mitre Street frontage is empty. Four of the corners are adorned with memorial panels.
