Scope and content

Fonds contains 10 watercolour renderings of "Maison dite de Robespierre," which was built in 1762 and demolished in 1909, and an unidentified English Gothic building, perhaps a guild hall or a town hall. There is a pen and ink drawing of an elevation of the façade of an English Gothic church. In addition, there are unsigned survey drawings of the Redpath Library of McGill University, depicting the building after the construction of the second extension designed by Percy Erskine Nobbs (1875-1964) in 1921. The Redpath Library was designed in 1891 by Andrew Thomas Taylor (1850-1937) and George William Hamilton Gordon (approximately 1854-1906).

Le fonds contient notamment des aquarelles de la «Maison dite de Robespierre», qui a été construite en 1762 et démolie en 1909, ainsi que d'un immeuble de style gothique anglais, peut-être une maison de corporation ou un hôtel de ville. Il y a un dessin au trait de la façade d'une église de style gothique anglais. En outre, il y a des dessins d'arpentage non signés de la bibliothèque Redpath de l'Université McGill représentant l'immeuble après la construction de la deuxième annexe dessinée par Percy Erskine Nobbs (1875-1964) en 1921. Le plan initial de la bibliothèque Redpath a été conçu en 1891 par Andrew Thomas Taylor (1850-1937) et George William Hamilton (circa 1854-1906).
