George IV Bridge – celebrating 50 years

Book signed by J K Rowling

On 4 July 2006, the National Library of Scotland celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of our George IV Bridge Building by the Queen.

To mark the anniversary, each week in 2006 we highlighted an item representing a year of collecting.
