Will have to save this one, if thats ok.
My grandfather was a lecturer in mining at the college in the 1930/40's...he started working life as a miner in the coal mines in Scotland.
The building is a wonderful looking one & hope no harm ever comes to it.
No wonder there was so much subsidence around town. Our school, Pem Senior on Montrose Ave was built in blocks connected by corridors in case of subsidence. There was at least one old mine shaft just a few dozen yards away.
