University of Edinburgh Comprehensive Development Area: Old College Redevelopment: reports and photographs

Scope and Content

Three reports concerning redevelopment of the University of Edinburgh Old College. The earliest by Ian G Lindsay & Partners (1964 ) outlines the history of Old College and provides plans and outline proposals for future use. Two from the late 1970s  are by Percy Johnson-Marshall & Associates and report on a proposed scheme to resurface to quad of Old College. One report consists of annotated photographs of an architectural model. An individual black and white photographic print (12cm x 8cm) and a composite of 3 black and white photographic prints, probably taken by Percy Johnson-Marshall, show the project to resurface the quad being undertaken.

The outline of a slide show on the redevelopment of Old College Quadrangle, in Percy Johnson-Marshall's hand is also included.
