Peter Grant, City Librarian 1972-1989
Peter Grant was City Librarian from 1972 until 1989 and is seen here on the steps of the Central Library on Rosemount Viaduct in 1976.

The wrought iron lamp standards topped by large globes were originally designed to hold gas lights. These beacons were only re-wired and lit again in the 1970s, following the wartime blackout. At the same time the "Central Library" inscription appeared giving the building more visibility.
