Aberdeen Training Centre 1914-1916
A photographic print with collated portraits of the staff and pupils of the Aberdeen Training Centre. The class photograph is from during World War I so some of the staff are in uniform.

The Training Centre was part of the University of Aberdeen, as can be seen by the University's coat of arms in the top right of the image. The man in the centre of the print is likely George Smith, the institute's director of studies between 1907 and 1922.

The photographs were taken and compiled by prominent Aberdeen photographer, Fred W. Hardie. As indicated in the lower right of the image his studio was located at 416 Union Street. Before starting his own business, Hardie was a senior staff photographer with the George Washington Wilson Company.

The photographic studio at 416 Union Street was later taken over by A. J. B. Strachan.
