The second and third floors are devoted entirely to the School of Art, additional rooms being provided for studies from the cast, life, design, modelling, painting, and enamelling. Teachers' rooms, cloak rooms, &c., are provided on each floor.

The walls of all the corridors are hung with reproductions of paintings of the Great Masters," furnished by the donor.

At the entrance to the corridor, on the first floor, is a bust in bronze of Mr. H. L. Storey, modelled by Miss Delahunt, one of the Art Teachers, the same being presented to the Institute by the students and staff as a mark of gratitude to Mr. Storey for thus providing the means of acquiring a more efficient training than was before possible.

The whole of the building is furnished and equipped with the most modern appliances for the teaching of art, science, domestic, commercial, and technical subjects.

Lancastrians feel deeply grateful to Sir Thomas Storey, and his son, Mr. H. L. Storey, for providing such a handsome block of buildings, so efficiently equipped, which will fill the needs of Secondary Education for many years to come.

From a collection of register extracts the following selection of Storys or Storeys, with their leading Christian names, male and female, is here given.

There was a fire at Arthuret church a few years ago, and the older Registers, dating from about 1630, were damaged so much as to be scarcely readable.
