98 and 99 Trafalgar Street, photographed from Pelham Square on 5 December 1953. Mr D P Hack occupied the house on the left, built about 1840, for many years. A leading educationalist, he relinquished an orchard at the back of his house for the building of York Place Higher Grade School, in 1884. Some years later, in 1893, the Pelham Street section of York Place School was built in the garden of No. 98. Finally, in 1906, his son, Mr Daniel Hack, gave to the corporation the two houses shown for use as an annexe to the Secondary Schools. The houses were put to this use until 1954 when No. 98 was demolished to make way for a further extension of the school.
