History lessons

In a moment of nostalgia-hunting last night, I decided to google my first primary school, which I left when my parents moved before my seventh birthday. I don't remember much about it except that it was quite a traditional school and the teachers disapproved of my mother having taught me to read before starting.

And then while skimming the prospectus, I came across this line:
"The infant school is housed in a lovely Victorian building, which was built in 1906."
Sigh... Maybe it just took five years or more to move from the architects' desk to construction.
