Tech sign

Up a cobbled street in Rochdale you’ll find these fine terracotta signs marking the original site of Rochdale Technical School. The college was built in 1892 and closed in 1989. They were saved when the building was demolished and were stored at the Touchstones gallery, but were too heavy to exhibit. They were returned to their original site in 2010.

Nation shall speak peace unto nation

The sign on the gorgeous Bush House, once the home of the BBC World Service and now part of King's College London. Built in the 1920s and 1930s, the building was once declared to be the most expensive in the world, and it is now listed.
