Old College, South Bridge, Edinburgh  Robert Adam’s monumental Roman composition for the street facade of the University’s major development dates from 1789. His design consisted of two linked quadrangles and work commenced but halted in 1793 due to various circumstances including Adam’s death the previous year. The scheme was completed with a single courtyard, and to walk through Adam’s giant archway is a memorable architectural experience. The dome we see here was added by Robert Rowand Anderson in 1879. The Old College and other jewels of the New Town will be included in a photographic exhibition featuring my work and that of Edwin Smith, whose images illustrated A J Youngson’s “The Making of Classical Edinburgh”, first published in 1966.
