York Scene: Promoting Public Education

York Scene: Promoting Public Education
After visiting Fairfax House, I was just browsing the city centre and passed by a Fire Hall on Clifford Street. Seen here is York Institute and York Magistrates Court.

The stone carving on York Institute reads "Art, Literature, Science". I suppose in the early 19th century the concept of public education and promoting universal literature, science and art was still in its infancy.
