Description:This view of the present day tea rooms and Library was captured in Market Street. Today the cobbles have gone from Stockwell Street but they remain along the short 'drive' from the street to the entrance of the Institute. The Nicholson Institute was completed in 1884, built on land which once belonged to Joshua Nicholson, the then owner of Greystones. Inside the Institute was a library, reading room, art gallery, a small museum and the Leek School of Art.
