ST. BEDE’S (RC) COLLEGE, MANCHESTER - On the 18th inst., which was Speech-day at St. Bede’s (RC) College, Alexandra Park, Manchester, Mr Humphrey F. de Trafford laid the foundation-stone of the central block of college buildings. The south wing was completed about two years ago, the erection of the central block and the north wing being postponed. The central portion will consist of an entrance-porch, 47 ft. by 10 ft., behind which will be a large vestibule with porter’s rooms, and offices on the first floor. Like the south wing, it will be four stories high, and will be in the Italian style of architecture. The architects are Messrs. Dunn & Hansom, of London, the principal contractor being Mr Healey, of Salford, and the cost of the work will be about £6,000. [Builder 28 July 1883 page 130]
