Scope and Content Studio, Edinburgh College of Art, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh The Edinburgh College of Art was designed in 1906-9 by John More Dick Peddie on an impressive corner-site overlooking Edinburgh Castle. The interior of the college was photographed in 1909 by the architectural photographer, Harry Bedford Lemere. This large, airy studio was one of several on the north side of the building which were devoted to drawing and painting. The antique casts were part of the college's extensive collection which was begun by the Board of Manufactures in 1797. The planning of the Edinburgh College of Art owes much to the sculptor, James Pittendrigh MacGillivray (1856-1938), who prepared a report on the state of art education in Scotland and in Europe, and made a grandiose design for the building.
