Carlisle Library Display

Cumbria’s Carlisle library, Globe Lane, have recently made a display [ image above] to mark the publication of a new tri-folded leaflet about Joseph Bell and the location of his memorial.

Joseph Bell was born in 1861, being named after both his grandfather and great grandfather.  He was educated initially at the Farlam village school and subsequently in Carlisle at Mr Harrison’s School, later to be known as Grosvenor College, located on the corner of Warwick Road and Warwick Square. There was accommodation for about 120 boys aged nine to eighteen. A staff of ten with regular visiting masters assisted the principle. The school’s last headmaster was Frank L Harrison. A serious fire in 1961 forced the school to relocate with the old school buildings being demolished in 1966.
