Architect: Giles Gilbert Scott, later very famnous indeed, was sent up
to London to be articled to a firm there, where he learnt his trade for
seven years.
Enegineers probably learnt on the job in the same way - there were few
technical schools (except night Mechanics' Institutes) and the
Department of Art and Science at Kensington was fledgling then, with no
resident students.
