Dates of existence



Andrew Robertson was born in 1868, and was articled to Thomas Dykes of Glasgow from 1882 to 1887, remaining for an additional year as junior draughtsman. He was then assistant to John Graham Peat and Duncan from 1888 until the following year, when he became assistant to Clarke & Bell & R A Bryden, progressing to the position of chief draughtsman in 1890. He travelled in Germany and Holland in 1891 and having passed the RIBA qualifying exam in 1893, was elected ARIBA on 5 June 1893, his proposers being Bryden, William Forrest Salmon and Thomas Lennox Watson. He left Clarke & Bell & R A Bryden in 1896 to commence practice on his own account, and around the turn of the century formed a brief partnership with Thomas Dykes. He returned to work with Robert Alexander Bryden after the latter had split from Clarke & Bell, some time between 1902 and 1906. In 1906 Robert Alexander Bryden died. On inheriting the practice his son Andrew Francis Stewart Bryden took Robertson into partnership. Robertson continued the practice under the same name after the younger Bryden's death in 1917. He was admitted FRIBA on 5 March 1923, his proposers being David Salmond, James Lochhead and William Brown Whitie. Joseph Boyd joined the partnership c. 1930, and continued the practice as Bryden Robertson & Boyd after Robertson's death in November 1932.
