Architecture Notes

NT29SE 507 27830 91750

For orginal Technical College building see NT29SE 453

Modern tower block forming part of Fife Technical College.

The 1st edition of the OS 25-inch map (Fifeshire, 1896, sheet) depicts and annotates the buildings as 'Technical College' and shows a location set back from St Brycedale Avenue and fronting on to Carlyle Road. By the date of the Revision edition of the 25-inch (1914), the group of huts and small buildings had been replaced by two main blocks and annotated 'High School'.

The Provisional Edition of 1938 retains the depiction of the two blocks, but shows the addition of the 1926 'Technical School' (NT29SE 453).

The modern tower block has been built on the part of the site, with the two earlier late 19th Century blocks being demolished.
