Some Historical Notes on the Application of Iron and Steel to Building Construction - Discussion on Mr. W. Basil Scott's Paper

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.
