Ruskin College

Love it!

The note said "The name of the college (unlike those of the University) is inscribed over the main entrance in the style of 19th-century mechanics' institutes". Was there ever any connection to a pre-existing mechanics' institute, as far as you know?

I don't think so, but the philosophy of the college is definately based round the 'working man'
