Scope and content

The design of the poster incorporates the range of activities, history and heritage of the University of Strathclyde and its antecedents, and shows the university in the context of the city of Glasgow. The modern solar-heated residences and other campus buildings are montaged with the medieval Tolbooth and the original Andersonian Institution. The same design appeared on the University of Strathclyde's official Christmas card for 1989.
