The Schoolmaster Engineer: Adam Anderson of Perth and St Andrews 1780-1846
About this item
The Ferguson Gallery, formerly Perth’s old water works, which now houses the celebrated J D Ferguson art collection, is an outstanding feature of Scotland’s industrial archaeology. Strangely, this architectural and engineering triumph, the powerhouse of the city’s first genuinely clean drinking water system, was the creation of a schoolmaster, Dr Adam Anderson (1780-1846), Rector of Perth Academy.
