2013 May Blog –Old Boy Remembered

Two new pictures of the Central Technical School's sports teams has just been unveiled in the Leopold Hotel Sheffield at 13.00 hours on Wednesday 29 May 2013. They are of the Junior Athletics Relay Team 1961/62 and the Junior Cricket Team 1959/60. Both feature sports master Bob Howell who died last year at his home in Spain. The unveiling was made by his son & daughter, John & Debbie Howell who have kindly donated the pictures to hang in the hotel.

The new photographs have been placed in the lobby of what was the Firth Building on the ground floor of the main staircase. Many old boys of the school will recall that this is at the entrance to what was the school hall (the Firth Lecture Hall) and immediately next to Bob Howell's small staff room.

The hotel is proudly showcasing many original features of the school and has a rich tapestry dating back to the 1800’s making the hotel a truly unique venue.
