Good News

sometimes, it's just where the keyboard takes you, after you look in the notebook. This might be autobiographical, but it isn't all true. Image. Author's own. BTW ten-out-of-ten for getting to our age if you remember this record being in the charts...

You have done some research. However, the RPI changed its name in 1883, or rather reopened under another name that year. 

"In September 1881, the Royal Polytechnic Institution closed, marking a transition to new ownership and a new era...

I think Jack's picked up on a couple of things, (I admit I didn't notice them).
