Originally sent on Saturday, but it doesn’t appear to have arrived.

Cobden House Chambers.

This is a long and sad list for one building to have on its side wall. I
couldn’t fathom why it was there until I found the blue plaque around the
corner which said the building was the base for Owens College- the
institution which became Manchester University- from 1851 to 1873. A lot of
young men would have made their way through the building over those years,
and a large number of them later found themselves in foreign fields.
