Title: New Library Map Room, Geological Society, 1972
Description: Black and white photograph showing the Geological Society Library’s new Map Room in Burlington House, refurbished from the old Council Room of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
The Royal Society was housed at Burlington House until 1967 when it moved to its own premises in Carlton House Terrace. The courtyard societies shared out the remaining space between them, resulting in substantial refurbishment between 1967-1974. The Chemical Society, now the Royal Society of Chemistry, moved into the accommodation vacated by the Royal Society.
In the photograph is the Society’s legendary librarian Mrs Edeltraud Nutt.
