Old College

About this memory

Old College Quad lies hidden behind this frontage on South Bridge. Enter through the archway and up the steps, and you come out into the wide open space of the quadrangle of the University of Edinburgh’s Old College. I like the contrast between the darkness of the entrance-way, opening out to the daylight of the open quad.
