Archive of the month

The Archive of the Month feature raises awareness amongst students and staff about the variety of material that we hold. In particular, the old Bangor photographs appear to spark a lot of interest and debate on the University’s Facebook pages.

Every month, an item is selected to be showcased. The item is scanned and a short piece of text written about its history.

Plan of ‘Proposed National School at Tregarth Bangor’ which includes section and front elevation drawings. Approval for the plan was given on the the 18th of June 1896, and signed by J.Williams and Watkin Jones.

This plan comes from the Penrhyn Castle collection which is now available in its entirety to the public at the University Archives, following the completion of a cataloguing project last year. You can browse through the catalogue online here.

This "Archive of the Month" was created by Ann Hughes, Archives Officer
