Manual High School in Louisville, 1909, Brook Street at Oak
Sometime after Manual moved to 2nd & Lee, the building became the
Henry B. Manly Junior High School
This building now contains apartments.
The "new" DuPont-Manual high school is at 2nd and Lee,
and is now one of Louisville's most prestigious preporatory schools.

Excerpt from an email received by OldLouisville.com in Oct: 2005:
The current apartment/condo building has an iron gate on one side, not now a gate to anything, but a kind of monument to the old days, with “Manly Gymnasium” inscribed across the top. I don’t remember the gate, though it’s likely I passed through it going into the gym for assemblies. Though there are signs that forbid trespassing, I went up the steps of the building and peered inside. Sadly, the remnant of grandeur that I remember the building having when I taught there, a very grand sweeping staircase in front of the doors, is now gone.
