Addiscombe College Photograph Album

  • AR29
  • Collection
  • c1859 - c1872

Photography was included in the curriculum from 1855 (taught by Aaron Penley, professor of civil drawing). The album includes group photographs and individual portraits of cadets and staff, and a few photographs of the College buildings and grounds, etc, mainly with pencilled captions. The photographs are mainly undated, but two are dated 1859, and most certainly date from around the same period. At the end of the album are several later group photographs etc (one dated 1872), including three apparently taken in India.

Addiscombe Military Seminary: Drawings

  • AR30
  • Collection
  • c.1740 - c.1909

Volume containing civil and military engineering drawings made by Addiscombe cadets, with prints and sketches of Addiscombe House, of cadets, and of individuals associated with the House and the East India Company; printed ephemera and manuscript letters; etc.

The principal feature of this volume is the series of about 40 sets of civil and military engineering drawings made by Addiscombe cadets, 1837 - 1843, mainly signed by Captain Hector Smith, assistant to the Professor of Fortifications. They include a plan of the Seminary grounds dated 1838, by Cadet Charles Jackson (p.5); and several other drawings showing details of the grounds. These are followed by miscellaneous prints (from various sources) and sketches of Addiscombe House/Military Seminary, of cadets, portraits of individuals associated with the House and with the East India Company, views of St James Church and other local scenes; and some printed ephemera, manuscript letters, newspaper cuttings etc (including a MS account of the death of the Earl of Liverpool in 1808, on p.89).

The leather binding may also date from the mid-nineteenth century. The volume appears to have been compiled in its present form in the early twentieth century, when the supplementary prints and other papers were added. 2 of these supplementary pieces (bound in as pp122-125 and 127-130) are in fact strays from the collection of miscellaneous Seminary records held at AR65.
