Scotland Street School--page 2 (of four pages)

Views of the rear--the south, with the playground divided by a fence to separate boys and girls at recess

The symmetrical rear is almost uniform with 18 classroom windows, varied only by the two central bays and the outermost ones with design motifs.

According to Crawford, "the stylized central images are a Scottish thistle and a Tree of Life, composed of Viennese-inspired squares and triangles" (118).
