The Highland and Agricultural Society's Show
The back page of a 4-page Evening Gazette supplement about the large Highland and Agricultural Society Show that took place in Aberdeen on 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th July 1894.

It shows a proposed design for the new front of Marischal College on Broad Street and portraits of various related individuals:

Charles Gordon (11th Marquess of Huntly and Lord Rector of the University of Aberdeen between 1890 and 1896)
David Stewart (Lord Provost of Aberdeen from 1889 to 1894)
Charles Mitchell (Aberdeen born, Newcastle based Shipbuilder and philanthropist. He lived in Jesmond Towers in Newcastle)
Alexander Marshall Mackenzie (prominent Aberdeen architect who designed the shown proposal)

The eventual new front to Marischal College differed somewhat to that shown and was opened in 1906.
