TitleUniversity of Surrey Construction Site: outside of buildings
Date4 January 1968
Name of CreatorP. Norman Button
DescriptionPhotograph taken outside from an open space of muddy land, on a slope looking down on the university buildings under construction. On the muddy land in the foreground are piles of construction materials dotted around - these include scaffolding bars, metal rods and planks of wood. On the right, not far from the photographer, is a large mound of earth. Behind this and to the left slightly, Senate House can be seen (the outer building work largely complete on this and windows installed, though some scaffolding remains around the protruding brick column on the end). More university buildings can be seen continuing to the left of Senate House - some with scaffolding around and some with windows installed. Down the slope to the left but before the buildings, is a man working in a digger. Behind him is a row of white wooden, temporary huts/ cabins, one of which has a small cross on. There is another white hut on the far left of the photo. Inbetween the man in the digger and Senate House, is a freestanding scaffolding structure with lights at the top. In the background, on the right of Senate House, is a row of residential houses and tall, thin conifer trees
