Jubilee of the City and Guilds (Engineering) College, London

Nature volume 135, page 171 (02 February 1935) | Download Citation

It is too near the achievement for us properly to assess the value of the work done in founding and establishing London's and the Empire's premier school of engineering, but it is more than probable that a century hence the historian will regard the movement which led to the establishment of the colleges at Finsbury and South Kensington as outstanding in importance and in the results it produced.
