Processing Information

Some items which were recorded in this section of the printed legacy catalogue the "Papers of Sir Professor Patrick Geddes" (1998) were described twice, once in the papers catalogue and then again in volume two of the catalogue which covered the photographs of the "Survey of Edinburgh". Those items which form part of the "Photographs for the Survey of Edinburgh" have been catalogued photographic series - (See: Coll-1167/B/26-27). The series heading "Higher Education Developments" is retained here to reflect the exhibition arrangement.

Caution: note that previous reference numbers A2.139-148 were mistakenly used twice in the legacy printed catalogue (1998). If cross referring to the legacy printed catalogue ensure referring to correct run of A2.139-148.
