McEwan Hall, University of Edinburgh on graduation day
Info from the internet: "Sir William McEwan, founder of the well known Edinburgh brewing firm, was MP for Central Edinburgh, a connoisseur of art and a noted philanthropist. Rowand Anderson's McEwan Hall is a magnificent D-shaped hall with two semicircular galleries served by a pair of ingenious spiral stairs, each arranged as a 'double helix' with separate interlocked spirals serving the two galleries, one entered from outside and the other from inside the hall for effective crowd separation. This was the main large hall in Edinburgh, and was also used by the City for concerts and functions before the building of their own Usher Hall in 1914 (built with funds donated by a rival Edinburgh brewer)."
