Aberdeen Central Library
Aberdeen Central Library was designed by George Watt but has been added to over the years.

This image shows the library decorated for the city's celebrations of the coronation of Edward VII and Queen Alexandra that were held on Saturday 9th August 1902. The new monarchs had been crowned the previous year.

The decorations on Schoolhill and Rosemount Viaduct were carried out under the direction of Mr Stewart, superintendent of Stewart Park.

See the Aberdeen Daily Journal of Monday 11th August 1902 for an extensive report on the coronation celebrations.
