The exterior of the Technical School in Union Place. Funded by Passmore Edwards and designed by Silvanus Trevail, the school was built in 1899 as a Technical College for men and women. It became a secondary school for boys aged 11-15 in the 1930s. The school was built as an extension to the Passmore Edwards Free Library which had been built in 1896. Both buildings were later used as Truro Community Library. Photographer: Unknown
