Nicholls Hospital was founded by the cotton merchant John Nicholls who died aged only 36 (1823-1859). It was completed in 1881 and served as a school for poor boys of the area. In recent years it has been refurbished and is now part of the Manchester College, former MANCAT.
It's a magnificent neo-gothic Victorian building that seems out of place in this part of Manchester. More info here: www.mancat.ac.uk/aboutus/History/nicholls.htm Compare my picture with this one: www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1137121
