THE CHAIRMAN, Mr. Ewart S. Andrews, proposing a vote of thanks to the author for his paper and for the interesting illustrations he had exhibited, said that the papers usually presented to the members of the Institution were of the type which described particular works or which dealt with some theoretical aspect of the science of structural engineering, but he personally was delighted that the Institution was able occasionally to provide facilities for the reading of a paper dealing with the history of the subject. There was great danger of forgetting what had been done in the past, but there was a great deal to be learned from the records of past work; they were of very great educiational value, and he had not the slightest doubt that Mr. Scott had derived great pleasure from the necessary researches he had made in the course of the preparation of the paper.

THE PRESIDENT, Lt. Col. J. Mitchell Moncrieff, C.B.E., M.Inst.C.E., &C., proposing a very hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Bossom for his paper, said that the meeting had been both instructive and pleasant. The meeting was one of the most interesting he himself had attended for a very long time, not only by reason of the very fine pictures which had been shown, but also by reason of Mr. Bossom’s very wise remarks and his entertaining and amusing asides.

Ancient Monuments:- Some Notable Structures in the Midlands

A brief reference to these in such an address may prove interesting and instructive. There is, however, a much wider purpose in my choice of subject. Rather more than thirty years ago, the late Professor Osborne Reynolds, of Owen's College (now the Manchester University) commenced a series of lectures to Civil Engineering students by telling them that one great advantage the profession had over others, was that examples of its practice could be seen and studied without let or hindrance; they are open to the public gaze. But, as studen&, for all engineers worthy of the name ever continue to be students, we ask, where shall we most profitably direct our gaze? It may well prove that not, the least helpful part of this address is that which assists in answering this question. Harry Jackson
