Heriot-Watt University facade photographs

Scope and Content

Large scale black and white photographic prints (maximum size 51cm x 60cm), which join together to show the full facade of the former Heriot-Watt University building in Chambers Street in Edinburgh. The adjacent Bank of Scotland, former dental hospital and Minto Street are also included. The statue of James Watt, later removed to the new Heriot-Watt University campus can be seen in situ as can busts of the founders of Heriot-Watt University: George Heriot and Leonard Horner. Some of the photographs have dimensions of parts of the buildings inked on, in metres, and a man holding a surveying pole, for scale, appears in some.
