Architecture Notes

REFERENCE: EDINBURGH CENTRAL PUBLIC LIBRARY

Accession 42374 -4 photographs showing general views dating from circa 1859 -numbers 44, 45, 46, 47.

REFERENCE: CITY ARCHITECT'S PLAN STORE

Drawer No 28 -contains an old plan of portion of Old Town between Tron Church and Adam Square (noted as produced at meeting of Works Committee of Improvement Trust on 9th October 1872, signed by David Cousin). The date of the plan would appear to be just before the building of the South Bridge was begun in 1785 as red lines on the plan indicate the proposed original line of the Bridge.
