  2. I agree with Gemma, very imposing. The first word I thought was Staunch looking. I can just picture old time Nun's in their Penguin suits glaring at the children to impose domination over them.

    1. Siddhartha, I've just done some more research and discovered it was built as a school on the site which includes a church and convent.

  9. There is such a starkness to it with no landscaping around it. I can picture nuns ruling the hallways!
