Grammar School, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon: the schoolroom in the Over Hall on the upper storey

NOTES: The Grammar School was originally the guildhall of the Gild of the Holy Cross, the ruling body of Stratford to the time of the Dissolution. The ground floor was the guildhall proper while the Over Hall became the town's school room. King Edward VI, having suppressed the Gild, entrusted the guild's school to the town corporation in 1553 after which it was known as Edward VI Grammar School. It is generally believed that William Shakespeare was educated in this room.

British Medical Association (now Zimbabwe House), 429 Strand, London: view showing defaced statues by Jacob Epstein

RIBA5798
Adams, Harry Percy (1865-1930)
NOTES: Built as the headquarters for the British Medical Association, this building served as the High Commission of Southern Rhodesia from 1923 until the Rhodesian Unilateral Declaration of Independence on November 11, 1965. It remained a representative office until the colony gained independence as Zimbabwe in 1980 and has since been known as Zimbabwe House. The 'Ages of Man' sculptures by Jacob Epstein, the sculptor's first major commission in England, were carved in situ. The mutilation of the statues occurred in the 1930s when possibly dangerous projecting features were hacked-off after pieces fell from one of the statues.
