One of the projects that has occupied my writing time as of late has been the creation of a Wikipedia article for the North Bennet Street School. Surprisingly, one had not been attempted before.
I wrote this article using Sarah Henry and Mary A. Williams’ book, titled North Bennet Street School: A short history 1885-1985, as a source for the history of the building and organization. It’s actually a very interesting read and includes photos of some of the earliest students and instructors.
This is my first ever contribution to Wikipedia, so I am rather pleased to have it up. I am also interested to see how the article develops as other users make changes and add information.

Well done. History of vocational education is interesting stuff. Jeff
Yea, Jeff and Mark Esser were talking the other day about your research into the history of model making as a form of training. I’m interested to hear about what you’ve come across.
Thanks! Also, I am looking forward to spending some more time looking through your blog (in the near future, probably after our site survey wraps up!) Great photos, by the way- it is so interesting to see all of this up close. Best, j.lane (lk)
