Digital copies of photographs taken by Hugh Pincott and others covering his time as a student in Dundee Quote from Pincott email of 13/9/2016: ....Although not labelled individually, the b/w images can be identified from the file title and reference to NPTTL [Nine Pints to the Law, the Hugh Pincott autobiography,(2016)]....B/W folder 85 contains images that were extracted from sections 36 to 49 (mainly June 1964).
