Aberdeen’s Art Deco Heritage 4. Art Deco In Aberdeen

I found this article after a search for Aberdeen Art Deco reached this blog and I followed the link. The list of buildings begins on page 6 of the document.

As well as some cinemas it gives my first Aberdeen Art Deco feature the Bon Accord Baths,

Jackson’s Garage,

and Amicable House (see below from flickr.)

Amicable House

For Foresterhill Medical School, King’s College Sports Pavilion and Tullos Primary School I could find no photos.

The Northern Hotel, of course, I have featured before but here’s another picture.

Northern Hotel, Aberdeen

(More of this hotel can be seen on flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/8333696/3203661261/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/8333696/3204511190/.)

No mention in the article of The Beach Ballroom, though.

In my other searchings I came across a Modernist House in Garthdee Road Aberdeen, Architect Roy Meldrum, near Gray’s Art School (see http://flickr.com/photos/74784995@N00/1356336304/ and http://flickr.com/photos/74784995@N00/1356336300/.)

Then there is The Lemon Tree/St Katherine’s Centre, Architects Jenkins and Marr 1937 (see at http://flickr.com/photos/74784995@N00/1368315644/.)

There is this too from Bon Accord Street.

There is also a striking relief on the side of a tenement.
